The UCSB Wind Ensemble with Paul Bambach, Director, will present its Annual Spring Concert on Sunday, May 27, 2018 at 3 pm in Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall. This concert will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the University Wind Ensemble and will also serve as an Alumni Reunion event. The first half of the concert will feature John Frantzen's symphony for band, Catalyst, with the composer in attendance. In the second half, the University Wind Ensemble and alumni will perform patriotic works celebrating the Memorial Day holiday such as Morton Gould's American Salute, Charles Ives' Variations on America, Carmen Dragon's arrangement of Samuel Ward's America the Beautiful, and John Phillip Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever. In addition, the concert will also feature graduate assistant Cynthia Vong conducting Eric Whitacre's Lux Aurumque as a tribute to victims and survivors of the 2014 Isla Vista event. 


Alumni who are interested in performing should plan on attending the rehearsal on Sunday, May 27th at 11 am in Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall. Concert dress is black pants, (all) black shoes, black socks (men), and a colorful top (men: no tie, sweater, coat).
