Taconic Music hosting Windhaven Wind Symphony
MANCHESTER — Taconic Music is presenting a concert by the Windhaven Wind Symphony, a program of Weston's Kinhaven Music School, at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 26, at Hunter Hall at Maple Street School.
Windhaven is a relatively new program produced by the Kinhaven Music School, which is open to wind players and percussionists ages 18 to 28. The program is a serious immersion for players to study high-level, challenging repertoire, take private lessons and experience master classes. Friday's concert is the culmination of work that the students began on May 21.
The program is coordinated by Dr. Thomas McCauley, who is also artistic director and conductor for the concert.
The concert includes the American Overture by Joseph Wilcox Jenkins, Irish Tune from County Derry by Percy Grainger, the dynamic Concertino for four percussionists and wind ensemble by David Gillingham, and Symphony No.4 by David Maslanka.
Admission is $10 at the door for adults (children are admitted free) with proceeds going to assist Taconic Music's educational programs.
