The Carnegie Mellon Wind Ensemble presents a diverse program that evokes the music of Scotland and the sound of bagpipes with Malcom Arnold’s Four Scottish Dances, delights in the classical mastery of Richard Strauss’ Suite in B-Flat, Op 4. and closes with David Maslanka’s Symphony No. 5 composed around well-known chorale melodies about which he said “but for all its blunt and assertive force, the Symphony is not tragic. It is filled with bright and hopeful energy.”

Repertoire:
Malcolm Arnold/Paynter:
Four Scottish Dances
Richard Strauss: Suite in Bb, Op. 4
David Maslanka: Symphony #5
