Dr. Adam Lambert, Director of Bands at SUU, said, “The Wind Symphony was awarded an
invitation to perform at the Utah Music Educators Association (UMEA) convention in February
2018. We submitted a recording of our 2017 Spring concert to the UMEA board and were
selected as a feature group for this year’s event. On October 20, 2017, we will be featuring
some amazing works in preparation for our February performance. Pieces will include High Wire
by John Mackey and Stampede by Steven Bryant. We have also invited The Red Rock Singers
to join us on a beautiful piece titled Seal Lullaby, which will also feature our new adjunct
professor, Jacob Lee.”
The SUU Wind Symphony is an auditioned ensemble made up of the top wind and percussion
students at SUU. The ensemble is committed to the performance of the highest quality
contemporary and traditional works in the wind band repertoire. Innovative concerts,
adventurous programming, and high-level music-making are the hallmarks of this select
ensemble.
Aria Williams, a Tuba Performance Major from Gardnerville, Nevada, said, “Something I've
learned from rehearsing for this concert is that we are all part of a team and we have to be
accountable to each other for the success of the group. We work hard to prepare our music and
we only get to showcase it a couple of times a semester.”
Support these amazing students as they prepare for the honor of performing at the UMEA
conference in February 2018. For more information about the Department of Music at SUU,
