Pick-Staiger Concert Hall

Mallory Thompson, conductor

The ensemble’s first concert of the spring quarter focuses on inspiration and dedication. A cherished cornerstone of the wind repertoire, the Robert Reynolds transcription of Morten Lauridsen’s choral setting of O magnum mysterium is a centerpiece of the performance, which also features music of Egil Hovland and Joan Tower. The concert concludes with a work by Northwestern alumnus and member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra trumpet section Michael Martin. His Lontano: Symphony for Wind Ensemble was premiered by the Symphonic Wind Ensemble in 2016, and is dedicated to Mallory Thompson and the ensemble.
