The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music Wind Symphony presents an evening of inspiring works at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019, in Corbett Auditorium. Tickets are on sale now.
Led by Kevin Michael Holzman, the Wind Symphony’s performance features John Williams’ epic "Jedi Steps and Finale" from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Gustav Holst’s timeless classic Hammersmith, which was premiered by the United States Marine Band in 1932.
The program also includes a new work by alumna Jennifer Jolley (MM, Composition, 2009). The Eyes of the World Are Upon You was originally commissioned in 2017 for the University of Texas Austin Wind Band. Jolley wrote it in memory of the 1966 University of Texas tower shooting, which was one of the first mass campus shootings in the United States.
“This piece is a celebration of life: to those who died that day, but also to those who survived,” Jolley wrote in her program notes.
