FSU Wind Ensemble to Perform Concert
The Frostburg State University Wind Ensemble will have a concert on Sunday, May 5, at 3 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. The group will perform under the direction of Philip Klickman. General admission is $5, student admission is $3 and admission is free for children 12 and under.
The Wind Ensemble will begin their concert with “National Emblem,” a march by E.E. Bagley that cleverly incorporates the first 12 notes of the “Star Spangled Banner.” Next, the group will play “Sun Dance” by the contemporary American composer Frank Ticheli, followed by “The Earle of Oxford’s March,” a march written by William Byrd during the Renaissance period and transcribed by the 20th-century composer Gordon Jacob. Then they will play “American Salute” by Morton Gould and “Oliver’s Birthday” by Bruce Broughton featuring trumpet soloist Brooke Speake. The concert will end with a fan favorite, “Rocky Point Holiday” by Ron Nelson.
