PLATTSBURGH — The Adirondack Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Daniel Gordon, will perform its annual winter concerts 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts and 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, in the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium in Hawkins Hall on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus.
Tickets are $10 general admission. All students get in free.
The program, titled “Contrasts,” features the premiere of the new work “Living Things” by Montreal composer Melissa Hui and commissioned by the Adirondack Wind Ensemble. Also on the program are Sergei Prokofiev’s “March, Op. 99,” PDQ Bach’s “Grand Serenade for an Awful Lot of Winds and Percussion” and H. Owen Reed’s “La Fiesta Mexicana.”
The Adirondack Wind Ensemble is composed of professional wind and percussion instrumentalists, who are primarily music educators from around the North Country. The group is dedicated to bringing the highest quality wind and percussion music to the Adirondack region.
The concerts are made possible, in part, with funds from the Eleanor Marcus Music Endowment; the SUNY Plattsburgh Student Association through the Campus Arts Council and the Music Department; a College Auxiliary Services grant; the SUNY Plattsburgh President’s Office, Alumni Office and Fitness Center; the Center for the Study of Canada and Institute on Québec Studies; and Kneucraft Fine Jewelry and Design.
