The Wind Ensemble is recording new commissioned works by current DMA composers, Christopher Stark (Augenblick) and Ryan Gallagher (Exorcism, with guest ‘death metal’ drum virtuoso Derek Roddy), as well as guest composer, Catherine Likhuta (Outloud, Concerto for Piano and Wind Ensemble). The CD will be released on the internet free of charge and will also be available to download from this site. If listeners wish to make a donation, all proceeds will go to the Costa Rica Project to bring instruments to Costa Rican children. A hard copy of the CD will also be available.
The CU Wind Symphony and associated student organization CU Winds unite student musicians dedicated to the study and performance of emerging and traditional wind repertoire. We explore music making as a vehicle for cross-cultural exchange and collaboration, and in doing so support Cornell's core values of public engagement and global awareness.
