TWU Wind Ensemble Concert To Focus On American Music

10/29/04


DENTON — George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” a quintessential piece of American music, is both the title and the centerpiece of a concert by the Texas Woman’s University Wind Ensemble.

The concert is scheduled at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4, in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets on TWU’s Denton campus. Admission is free. For more information, call (940) 898-2500.

Dr. Richard Shuster, TWU assistant professor of music, will be the piano soloist on the title piece, which he describes as one of the most famous pieces for piano and orchestra.
“It’s popular around the world,” Shuster said. “It seems everyone knows and loves it.”

TWU’s Wind Ensemble also will perform works by David Amram, who recently served as composer in residence at the university, and Michael Torke.
