Southeastern Oklahoma State University's

Musical Arts Series

 

 

 

 WindSync!

 

This past September, the awarding winning and charismatic quintet WindSync appeared as the guest artist ensemble on Southeastern Oklahoma State University’s Musical Arts Series, offering a space themed concert of works acknowledging mankind’s interest in space exploration and our place in the universe, not surprising for an ensemble based in Houston where NASA’s Johnson Space Center has served as a hub of human spaceflight activity for more than half a century.  The program commemorates the 40th anniversary of NASA’s Voyager interstellar mission as well as the 100th anniversary of the completion of the most famous orchestra work associated with our solar system, and features an overture by Jacques Offenbach to an operetta inspired by the novels of Jules Verne, a passacaglia structured around the phases of the moon by Dieterich Buxtehude, selections from The Planets by Gustav Holst, a suite of excerpts from the Voyager Golden Records, curated by Carl Sagan and the Wind Quintet No. 2 by three time Grammy-nominated American composer Miguel del Aguila.   Appearing at the University's Fine Arts Recital Hall on Tuesday, September 26th, WindSync also offered a series of master classes for University wind students, a special program for arts students in Durant's Silo ISD public school district and is a featured ensemble of Allied Concerts this season, which brings touring world class artists to community concert associations in smaller cities and towns across the United States.
