TWU Wind Ensemble Slates Concert Debut

2/14/03


DENTON — The newly formed Texas Woman's University Wind Ensemble will debut in concert at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25, in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets on TWU's Denton campus. Admission is free.

John Wacker, adjunct professor of music at TWU, will direct the new ensemble, which consists of all wind instruments, from clarinets to trombones.

Mr. Wacker said the 40-member ensemble differs from a tradition concert band. A concert band may consist of two or more instrumentalists playing the same part, whereas a wind ensemble “relies more on the strength of the individual player,” he said.

Mr. Wacker said he is looking forward to the ensemble's premiere concert, which will include the works of Vaughan Williams, Margolis, Bizet, Root and Holsinger.

“It will be an important milestone in the development of this ensemble,” he said.
