The UMD Wind Ensemble portrays an eclectic cast of characters in its season opening concert.

Christopher Stark’s Augenblick uses technologies that record the ensemble in real time and then immediately play the recordings both forwards and backwards, shifting the listener between two different worlds of sound. Malcom Arnold’s Scottish Dances depicts Scottish landscapes through exuberant dances; Percy Grainger’s Colonial Song creates a sentimental image of his native Australia; and William Schuman’s New England Triptych captures the ruggedness and patriotism associated with America’s Revolutionary period.
