Fall Winds concert blows into town, Oct. 30
SACKVILLE, NB — Mount Allison’s department of music will present a Fall Winds concert on Sunday, October 30 at 3 p.m. in Brunton Auditorium. Fall Winds is a chamber music group that was organized 12 years ago and is comprised of professional musicians from all three maritime provinces. It will be conducted by James Mark who is presently musical director for Prince Edward Island Symphony Orchestra and New Brunswick Youth Orchestra. The latter organization has performed in New York City and the musically historic city of Parma, Italy in the last two years.
Fall Winds performs in the fall (thus the name), and plays large ensemble works that are not often heard. Works to be performed in this concert are the outstanding Serenade in D Minor, Op. 44 by Antonin Dvořák, the Serenade in E-flat Major, Op. 7, by Richard Strauss, an arrangement of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Overture to The Marriage of Figaro, and James Grant Code’s Carnival.
Musicians performing are members of Prince Edward Island Symphony Orchestra and Symphony New Brunswick, others are past and present students of Mount Allison University. They include Melanie Reeks and Craig Lutes (Mount Allison students, flute), Belinda Code and Jolene Buchholz (oboe), Karem and Ruth Simon (clarinet), Robert Lewis and Amy Dawson (bassoon), James Code, Michael Chisholm, Allie McCrady, and Chris MacDonald (horn), Danise Ferguson (cello), and Bill Bartlett (double bass).
