The Tempe Symphonic Wind Ensemble

By Donna Langwig

Special to the Nugget

Vista Fine Arts is thrilled to host the Tempe Symphonic Wind Ensemble for their second concert in Tucson. The date is Sunday, November 24 at 3:00 p.m. and the place is Vista de la Montaña United Methodist Church, 3001 Miravista Lane in Catalina (on the west side of Oracle Road, 3.7 miles north of Tangerine).

The ensemble, now in its 25th season, “plays for the love of music….” and you will love their program! They are presenting “I Love This Land,” a collection of patriotic music, folk songs, great marches, and audience favorites guaranteed to warm the heart.

The Tempe Symphonic Wind Ensemble, organized in 1989, is composed of 46 of the finest musicians from the Phoenix metropolitan area. These musicians are dedicated to the performance of outstanding band literature and have provided Arizona with a unique cultural experience of the highest quality. Under the direction of Dr. Michael Willson, the ensemble is critically acclaimed for its high caliber of performance and is recognized as one of the finest wind ensembles in the United States. Dr. Willson, a music educator for 30 years, serves as a guest conductor and clinician throughout the United States. In 2002, the ensemble was awarded the “Sudler Silver Scroll” by the John Philip Sousa Foundation, for outstanding musical achievement and service to the community. This is North America’s most prestigious award for Community Concert Bands.

This event is free and open to everyone in the community. An offering will be taken. Please join us for an afternoon of joyful, familiar, exhilarating music. For more information, visit www.vistaumc.org or call 520-825-1985.
