The Kentucky Wesleyan College Wind Ensemble/Honors Wind Ensemble will present a concert on Tuesday, November 20, at 7:30 p.m. in Cannon Hall at the RiverPark Center. KWC Director of Bands Steven A. Pederson will conduct the Wind Ensemble, which includes 25 local high school students, assisted by DuWayne Dale.
Dale is Director of Bands at Daviess County High School.
This 65-member group will feature traditional and contemporary works for the wind band by Reed, Barnes, Smetana and Biebl, along with a solo trumpet/band performance by Kris Eans, a local professional trumpet player.
The Wind Ensemble will also perform “Godzilla Eats Las Vegas” by Eric Whitacre, a contemporary work that showcases the wind band, both technically and stylistically, through an imaginary battle between Godzilla and the stars of Las Vegas.
