Dr. Leah McGray, Conductor
Please join the Geneseo Wind Ensemble in their celebration of the lives of composers David Maslanka and Karel Husa. Maslanka, a former professor at Geneseo, had risen to rapid prominence in the wind band world. An un-published manuscript found in the music library has only been performed one other time, and we are pleased to bring this charming suite back to light. Together with Maslanka’s “Give Us This Day,” a “short symphony” for wind ensemble, the program will also include music by J.S. Bach, Strauss, and former Cornell composer Karel Husa’s “Smetana Fanfare.”
Free and open to the public.
