JSU Chamber Winds Present Spring Concert
The Jacksonville State University Chamber Winds will present its first
of two spring concerts on Thursday March 8 at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be held in the Performance Center on the 3rd floor
of Mason Hall on the campus of JSU. FREE ADMISSION!
Comprised of students from across the country, the Chamber Winds is the most elite concert ensemble on campus. The high
caliber of players allows the group to explore the most difficult of literature in the concert band library.
Among the highlights of the program will be Japanese composer Jun Nagao’s masterpiece, The Fluttering Maple Leaves.
This beautiful, yet challenging composition, has been performed only a few times in the United States. The concert will
also include the joyous Godspeed by Stephen Melillo, October by up and coming film composer Eric Whitacre,
and The Washington Post March, a rousing march by John Philip Sousa.
Kenneth G. Bodiford, the conductor of the Chamber Winds, said he is very excited about the concert. “The music is very
challenging as well as beautiful”, he said. “These young men and women are truly a joy to work with everyday. I encourage
everyone to come out and support them!”
