~ Music for Winds at UCUC ~

Join us November 11 th at 3 PM  for a performance in the UCUC sanctuary  of music by Bach and Ravel, transcribed for 5 wind players.   The musical selections will include Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 1 and Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, both arranged for an ensemble of oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet, saxophone, and bassoon.  Both of these pieces are dance suites, consisting of a series of formalized dance movements; the Ravel, originally for piano, intentionally refers back in style to the dance suites written for harpsichord by Couperin.   By the late Baroque the dance suite had developed into a grander piece, such as the one by Bach.   Come and enjoy the program!   And if you know students who are wind players, encourage them to come as well!

Proceeds from a free-will offering at this program will benefit UCUC.
