San Luis Obispo Wind Orchestra: Make a Joyful Noise
Our holiday concert fills the air with plenty of secular variety to complement traditional holiday fare. Our featured soloist is concert master Byron Mele, performing the second movement of David Maslanka’s Concerto for Clarinet and Wind Ensemble. “Dance’s” bubbling and sometimes urgent energy climaxes in a beautiful hymnal passage.
The holiday program also offers Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 arranged for chamber winds, Maslanka’s Mother Earth Fanfare and David Holsinger’s poignant On a Hymnsong of Phillip Bliss, based on the gentle hymn It is Well with My Soul. We complete our holiday concert with traditional holiday favorites plus the hearty Minor Alterations, a comic twist on traditional Christmas carols that will bring a smile to your face and laughter to your heart! And don’t forget the holiday sing-along.
Parking is FREE in Lot 2A in front of the CPAC.
