The Cal Poly Humboldt Wind Ensemble
is putting on a matinee performance at Fulkerson Hall
today at 2 p.m.
($10 general, $5 children, free for students). The program will be heavy on American composers, and will include pieces by Aaron Copeland, John Barnes Chance, William Schuman and others. I like a good wind ensemble, beyond the mildly humorous evocation of airflow in the name, the sound is really quite arresting. Interestingly, proof of vaccination and booster is required, but not mask wearing, which is instead strongly suggested. I suppose it would be a bit difficult to play the euphonium or bassoon with that particular pandemic accessory in place.
