Spectrum Winds Concert


This is not a ticketed event. Registration doesn't reserve a seat, as seating is open on a "first come, first served" basis.
Presented by the US Air Force Band of the West
2:00pm Sunday, January 29 in the OMAM Reception Gallery

Composed of six world-class musicians, Spectrum Winds explores the diverse world of chamber music for winds and percussion, exposing audiences to traditional woodwind quintet literature, Latin, jazz, Celtic and more. This small ensemble is a component of the United States Air Force Band of the West and brings the highest standards of musical excellence to its audiences with a passion to honor our past heroes, inspire the present generation, communicate the Air Force story, and recruit future generations of Airmen. The inherent versatility of Spectrum Winds enables it to draw on a long heritage of chamber music from Mozart and Beethoven moving forward to contemporary jazz and pop music, marches and patriotic favorites. The group will be performing a selection of works based on African-American spirituals, including some under-performed arrangements by Valerie Coleman of the Imani Winds. They will also be playing some hits, including Libertango. This program is in preparation for Black History Month, and honors the contribution of African-American music to the art music canon.
PLEASE NOTE: Once seating has reach capacity, the event will be standing-room only.
Event Registration is closed.
