Clayton State University Wind Ensemble to hold Spring Concert at Spivey Hall

Clayton State University’s Wind Ensemble will hold its spring 2008 concert in Spivey Hall on Apr. 9 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.

A special piece by a Clayton State senior music composition student Christel Vinot (Jonesboro), entitled “Forsaken Past,” will be featured among the night’s program.

“The original version of this piece, for string orchestra, trumpet, piano and percussion, received its premier in 2005 by the Southern Crescent Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Richard Bell,” explains Vinot. “It was so well received that I decided to re-orchestrate the piece for wind ensemble. I was very pleased with the result, and would like to thank Dr. Patrick Carney and the Clayton State University Wind Ensemble for doing such a great job!”

The concert will also feature the Clayton State University Brass Ensemble, Flute Trio, and Percussion Studio. The Wind Ensemble will also perform works by Holst, Yurko, Gillingham and O’Loughlin.
