Our winter concert celebrates the glories of the symphonic wind ensemble with beloved pillars of the repertoire (Holst and Bach/Goldman), twentieth-century classics (Mennin and Dahl), and more recent works destined to become favorites (Stephenson, Gillingham, Ticheli). The spirituality of the Bach and Gillingham; the nobility of the Mennin and the Holst; the lyricism and virtuosity of the Dahl; and the big-hearted exuberance of the Stephenson and the Ticheli --- all these qualities will embrace you as they find their expression in the expert playing of MetWinds. In a nod to our recent 50th anniversary, the Mennin and Dahl works are reprised from our inaugural concert (March 1972), 50 years ago!
