Please join the Geneseo Wind Ensemble for our performance of “Cathedrals” featuring music written for, performed in, and inspired by the stunning St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice. Music by Frank Ticheli, Kathryn Salfelder, Giovanni Gabrieli, and Renaissance songs transcribed for winds, the program will also feature the premiere performance of a commissioned work “Ash” by composer Jennifer Jolley.

The ensemble was recently featured during the Great Day celebration on campus. The large ensemble and two student-led small combos will present music from a variety of traditional and contemporary jazz composers. Seniors Sam Dole, trumpet; Rob Marino, trombone; and Cody Esposito, tenor saxophone will be among the featured soloists. Junior Joe DiGiorgio will be featured on trumpet as well.
Even the most dire circumstance can offer opportunity for new beginnings. Just ask singer / songwriter Blake Christiana or any of the other members of the once Brooklyn based Americana band called Yarn. At least that’s the conclusion they came to after a period of real life challenges that left the band splintered and unsure of their forward trajectory. Internal tensions were simmering. A new album was scrapped. A major move from Brooklyn to North Carolina added to the uncertainty. For a band that seemed forever on the verge of a big breakthrough, the future suddenly seemed cloudy.
“We were dealing with real life issues,” Christiana explains. “Broken relationships, a sense of having to regroup and put some things — and people — behind us. That’s what I was writing about lyrically in the new songs and it became kind of a catharsis. Nothing was contrived. We didn’t have to relate to it in the third person. We were living these circumstances, and that gave us the impetus and inspiration to share our sentiments. Ultimately those setbacks and difficulties led to new opportunities and allowed a little light to shine through.”
Doors: 6pm, Show: 7pm / Tickets: General admission $20 in advance, $24 at the door.
