Martin

The Webster University Wind Ensemble, directed by James A. Martin, performs a concert of music ranging from transcriptions of compositions to original pieces written for the wind ensemble. The concert takes place Monday, March 4, at 7 p.m. in the Community Music School’s Concert Hall.

Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote the majestic Flourish for Wind Band in 1939. Australian composer Ralph Hultgren’s Moto Perpetuo (1992) is a study in the musical energies that can be created by the ensemble. The concert will also include Jules Massenet’s complete ballet music from the 1885 opera Le Cid in a beautiful transcription by Verne Reynolds.

The Community Music School is located at 535 Garden on Webster University’s campus. Admission to the concert is $3, and free for Webster community members with valid I.D. For more information, call 314-968-7032, or the Fine Arts Hotline at 314-968-7128.
