Indiana State Wind Orchestra presents Colors, Feelings, and Images concert

TERRE HAUTE — Roby G. George, Indiana State University School of Music’s director of bands will conduct a concert with the Wind Orchestra at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in Tirey Hall’s Tilson Auditorium.

The title of the concert, Colors, Feelings, and Images is a reflection upon the moods of the works to be performed on the concert. George intends for the program “to be of a lighter, more entertaining nature, with music that is easy to listen to and enjoy.”

The most well known work to be performed as the opener of the Thursday evening concert is Leonard Bernstein’s Overture to Candide casually known as the Candid Overture. This band classic will be followed by the virtuous composition based on four colors, “Yellow,” “Red,” “Blue,” and “Green” which will feature the faculty artist Randy Mitchell on trombone.

The next two works on the program are described by conductor George as “the most evocative on the program.” Luigi Zaninelli, the composer of Roma Sacra, is known by performers and audiences around the world for work that excites the senses and stimulates the mind. The penultimate work on the program by composer Christopher Theofindis, I Wander the World in a Dream of My Own Making is an aural exploration of the compositional process “where writing a piece of music is like creating a dream that you want to have.” The concert will close with composer Philip Sparke’s impressions from a trip to New York in his work entitled A Weekend in New York.

Admission to the event is free and attendance by campus and community members is encouraged. For more information, contact the School of Music at (812) 237-2771.
