“The focus of this year’s concert season is collaboration,” said Jason CaslorDirector of Groups at ASU.

In addition to connecting with fellow musicians at two public high schools through joint concerts, Caslor said the wind bands have planned on-campus collaborations with ASU Dance, USS Theater, The new American film school Sidney Poitierme the ASU Composition Studio and the ASU Choral Program.

Other guest artists joining them this year include the composer Shuying Li, conductors Gillian MacKay and Lea McGrayand ASU faculty Nathan De’Shon Myers (baritone), Joe Burgstaller (trumpet), Brad Edwards (trombone) and Albie Micklich (bassoon).

“We are always looking for ways to bring guest artists to campus who will inspire and share their unique perspectives with our student musicians,” said Jamal DuncanAssociate Director of ASU Groups.

“We also think it’s important to showcase the incredibly talented performers at the School of Music, Dance and Drama,” Caslor said. “Sharing the stage with them is always a privilege.”

October sees the ASU Chamber Winds and the Maroon and Gold Band at the Madison Center for the Arts present music ranging from intimate chamber music to repertoire requiring a large concert band. November welcomes the Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble to ASU Gammage for an evening inspired by the works of William Shakespeare, Langston Hughes and Nina Simone. The Wind Symphony slips into Thanksgiving with a student heading to DMA Dylan Madix‘s recital which rightly focuses on the theme of “home”.

Spring concerts include “Hollywood!” in January, the epic “Symphony in Bb” by Paul Hindemith in February, side-by-side with Tempe High School in March, and an April performance of David Maslanka’s “Traveler.” The Wind Symphony and Maroon and Gold Band close out the season at the end of April by celebrating student successes and achievements.
