Dr. Robert Halseth, newly appointed principal conductor for the Winds, has selected a dynamic program of music for this concert. Selections include Bach’s beautiful “Sleepers Wake,” a performance of “Second Suite in F” by Holst in celebration of its 100th anniversary, Persichetti’s exuberant “Pageant” and Ticheli’s contrast between good and evil in “Angels in the Architecture.” The Ticheli work features unique instrumentation and soprano soloist Kathryn Donovan. The musicians of the Winds thoroughly enjoy Dr. Halseth’s musicianship, knowledge and enthusiasm and look forward with great pleasure to their future collaboration.

In acknowledgement of his many years of outstanding leadership, commitment, guidance and friendship to the Sierra Nevada Winds, the board has unanimously appointed William “Bill” Hill as Conductor Laureate. In this capacity, he will continue his valued association with the group, in this concert conducting the exciting “Tam o’Shanter Overture” by Malcolm Arnold.

The program also includes “Sleep” by Eric Whitacre, Grainger’s “Molly on the Shore,” “Essay for Band” by Heisinger and Barber’s “Commando March.” According to Halseth, “Each has a unique story of its own.”
