The UVic Wind Symphony, conducted by Steven Capaldo is joined by guests the Naden Band of the Royal Canadian Navy in “Something Old, Something New...” This is the sixth annual collaboration of these two outstanding ensembles—a partnership that is unique in Canada.
This first concert of a two-part concert series presents a modern twist on the traditional approach to concert programming of an overture, a symphony, a march and a concerto through new and classic works for wind ensemble. With special guests the Naden Band of the Royal Canadian Navy, this concert includes works by Copland, Persichetti, Jager, Bryant and features UVic student Jason Gordon playing Gillingham’s Concerto for Euphonium, Winds & Percussion.
