March(es) in October

Members of the Wind Ensemble got to take their music stands and sheet music out of a practice room and into the pleasant October weather.

UGA’s Wind Ensemble presented its first outdoor concert on North Campus in October. The event was designed to evoke the feel of an old-fashioned band concert in the park, and attendees were encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnic lunches. The first half of the program included light classics like “Bacchanalia” from Aram Khatchaturian’s “Spartacus,” selections from the Broadway hit “Wicked” and Edwin Franko Goldman’s “On the Mall” march, during which the audience was invited to sing along. The second half of the program showcased historic band music with original instrumentation on such classics as John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever” and “Washington Post” march.
