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.
New media works by UWindsor music instructor David Litke are on the program for in/fuse 16, Thursday, March 21, at 7:30 p.m. in Lambton Tower’s basement Studio A.
The free event will feature guest artists Krista Vincent and Aaron Hodgson, as well as Sigi Torinus, Martin Schiller, Trevor Pittman, David Litke, Brent Lee, Aaron Eichler and Nic de Cosson.
A new “early warning” system will help electronically identify struggling students in such departments as psychology, history, languages and philosophy and get them the help they need before it’s too late, according to Tanja Collet-Najem.
