Wind Ensemble concert to spotlight student soloists

Solo performances by four music students are among the highlights of the University Wind Ensemble’s Spring Concert on Friday, April 12, at Banwell Community Church.

The 24-member ensemble, directed by UWindsor alumnus Ric Moor (BMus 1992, B.Ed 1993), will play a varied program which includes the circus march Barnum and Bailey’s Favorite, the theme from the 1988 film Cinema Paradiso, and Frank Ticheli’s 1999 composition Shenandoah, inspired by the folk tune.

Serenade for a Picket Fence, by Norman Leyden, promises to bring the picket fence right up front, as xylophonists Sondra Galina and Aaron Eichler take centre stage. Other student soloists include flutist Jordan Francis and saxophonist Ben Broll.

Showtime is 6:30 p.m. Find more information, including a full program, on the concert website.

Admission is $10, $5 for students. Tickets are available at the door or in advance by phone at 519-253-3000, ext. 4212, or online at
