CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon State University Wind Ensemble presents its winter term performance at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 3, at the LaSells Stewart Center at Oregon State University in Corvallis.
Percy Grainger’s “Lincolnshire Posy” opens the program. The six-movement work has been a mainstay of the concert stage since its premiere in 1937. Grainger thought of each movement as a “bunch of wildflowers” that he dedicated to the folk singers from which the work is derived.
Other works include Jess Turner’s “Rumpelstilzchen,” a musical depiction of the fairytale; “Three American Icons,” a conspiracy-theory tinged suite by English composer Judith Bingham; two movements from Michael Daugherty’s “Reflections on the Mississippi” featuring student tuba soloist Emily Rumpca; and the premieres of “Magna Chao” by Oregon State student Eric Russell and “The Mountain Spring” by OSU student Kevin Rooney.
The performance is directed by Chris Chapman.
