UMD Wind Orchestra: of a rare and special type
UMD Wind Orchestra
Members of Orpheus Chamber Orchestra
Conductor Michael Votta
Two sound worlds collide in a program that pairs Mozart’s Serenade in B-flat (“Gran Partita”) K. 361 and Varese’s Octandre, Intégrales, Deserts, Hyperprism and Density 21.5.
During Orpheus’s 2011-2012 residency in the UMD School of Music, Orpheus members engaged in coaching sessions, rehearsals and masterclasses, providing students the opportunity to experience the Orpheus conductor-less ensemble performance process.
Orpheus members will join the student performers in bringing these very different works before the audience.
This performance is made possible in part by support from The MARPAT Foundation.
