Ouachita Chamber Winds in concertNovember 11, 2021 - Emma Dennis

Ouachita Baptist University’s Division of Music will present its Chamber Winds fall concert Thursday, Nov.18, at 7:30 p.m. in the McBeth Recital Hall. The concert is open to the public and free of charge.

“I am looking forward to hearing our students perform a variety of fun and interesting music on stage for an audience again after a long hiatus due to COVID-19,” said Dr. Caroline Taylor, professor of music at Ouachita and concert conductor. “I hope that audiences will have a renewed appreciation for the importance of listening to live music and an appreciation for the opportunity to hear our music students perform.”

The Ouachita Saxophone Quintet will open the program with “The British Grenadiers,” a traditional British and Canadian military marching song arranged by James Christensen; “Fast Walk” by Daniel Dorff; and “When I’m Sixty-Four,” written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon and arranged by Ramon Ricker. The Flute Quartet will follow with a performance of “Largo” and “Vivace” from Concerto for Four Flutes, TWV 40:201 by G.P. Telemann and “Trepak (Russian Dance)” from Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite.

“Epitaphe de Jean Harlow” by Charles Koechlin will be performed by Cross Brandon, a senior music industry major from Little Rock, Ark., on flute; Craig Crawford, a senior instrumental music performance major from Texarkana, Texas, on saxophone; and Ouachita staff accompanist Kristen La Madrid on piano.

The Clarinet Ensemble will perform “Andantino” and “Allegretto all marcia” from Petite Quartet by W.A. Crosse and “Mock Morris,” written by Percy Grainger and arranged by Steve Knight. “Love,” “Bravery,” “Sweetness” and “Vigor” from Telemann’s Heldenmusik: The Heroic Temperaments will be performed by the Double Reed Trio.

Ludwig von Beethoven’s “Abschiedsgesang,” “Felicity” by Raymond Premru and “Little Fugue” by Robert Schumann will be performed by the Brass Trio, then the Saxophone Quartet will close the concert with “Andante et Scherzo” by Eugene Bozza and “Volcanic Ash” by Chris Evan Hass.

“I am most excited about hearing all of the different instrument ensembles,” said Katelyn Still, a senior instrumental music education major from Benton, Ark., on alto saxophone. “You are able to hear specific instruments in a group and appreciate their unique sound. I want audiences to gain a greater appreciation for the different instruments they are listening to.”
