Foundations: A Celebration of Liberal Arts/HISTORY

With Wesley Ferreira, Clarinet; Tiffany Blake, Soprano; and James David, Composer

The 2018-2019 Wind Symphony season explores civilization and how humans develop a creative, moral, spiritual, and intellectual understanding of the world. Colorado State University is committed to the humanities, and the Wind Symphony, conducted by Rebecca Phillips, continues the season with an historically significant performance for Colorado State University as a featured ensemble at the American Bandmasters Association national convention in March 2019. We hope that you will join us for a celebration of the Liberal Arts with these two performances of the program.
