Join us for the Wind Orchestra Tour Concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 27, in the A. F. Siebert Chapel.
Music from the Lenten season will form the program for the Wind Orchestra Spring Tour to Phoenix, Ariz. Selections include the dramatic “Via Crucis” by Martin Ellerby, for solo violoncello and wind orchestra and William Latham’s “O Sacred Head, Now Wounded.”
The Carthage Wind Orchestra is recognized as a worldwide leader in commissioning and performing new works, including James Stephenson’s “This is Most Certainly True” (written for the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Church), Andre Previn’s “Music for Wind and Percussion,” Stacy Garrop’s “Mythology Suite,” and Xi Wang’s “Winter Blossom.” In addition, the Wind Orchestra has specialized in the production of silent film accompaniments created for regional tours, including “The General,” and “Metropolis.” The band has a long and distinguished history of service to Carthage and the artistic life of the communities of Kenosha, Wis., and Carthage, Ill., and has maintained a rich tradition of touring the Midwest, along with international study tours in Japan.
