With James David, Composer; Peter Sommer, Saxophone; Sheridan Loyd, Graduate Student Conductor; and Myron Peterson, Graduate Student Conductor
Codex Gigas is a famous medieval manuscript from the 13th century that is the central inspiration to James David’s newest composition, Symphony No. 1. The Wind Symphony, conducted by Rebecca Phillips, concludes their 2019-2020 season with a program full of masterworks, including Ingolf Dahl’s Concerto for Alto Saxophone with guest faculty artist Peter Sommer, and the consortium premiere of David’s new symphony, Symphony No. 1 “Codex Gigas,” conducted by graduate conducting student Sheridan Loyd. Join us for an evening of impressive works for the wind medium.
