Welcome to Winds on Wednesdays, a musical tapas of winds, brass, and percussion. This 5-week series features short digital mini-concerts, each just 20-30 minutes in length, in celebration of the bold music-making of NEC's Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Winds during the Fall semester of 2020.
In each mini-concert, hear a selection of contemporary and classic works, recorded live in Jordan Hall and presented unedited.
ABOUT THE ENSEMBLES:
NEC Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Winds have established reputations as premier presenters of woodwind and brass repertoire from the Renaissance through the present day, performing works for small and full ensemble. The ensembles highlight classics and new works, including those that are sometimes neglected because of unusual instrumentation, and have commissioned and premiered new works by Pulitzer Prize composers Michael Colgrass, John Harbison, and Gunther Schuller, plus other distinguished composers such as Sir Michael Tippett, Daniel Pinkham, and William Thomas McKinley.
