PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (Jan. 16, 2013) - The Adirondack Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Daniel Gordon, will perform “Classical and Neo-Classical,” a program of chamber music for winds for its annual winter concerts.
The Classical work is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Serenade No. 11,” K. 375 and the Neo-Classical work is Igor Stravinsky’s “Octet.” Both pieces are considered masterpieces of their respective eras.
The concerts will take place 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts and 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27 at 2:00 pm in the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium, Hawkins Hall, located on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus. Tickets are $10 general admission. All students are free.
The Adirondack Wind Ensemble is a professional musical ensemble featuring wind and percussion instruments. Its performers consist primarily of music educators from around the North Country. The group is dedicated to bringing the highest quality wind and percussion music to the Adirondack region.
These concerts are made possible, in part, with funds from the Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts, and with support from the SUNY Plattsburgh Student Association through the Campus Arts Council and the Music Department, a College Auxiliary Services grant, and the SUNY Plattsburgh President’s Office, Alumni Office, and Fitness Center.
