Description:

Ticket sales for this event have been suspended. Following a decision by Northwestern University leadership by April 17, we will determine whether this event can still occur as scheduled.

Mallory Thompson, conductor; Jacob Nissly, percussion; Adam Schoenberg, guest composer

The centerpiece of the Symphonic Wind Ensemble’s May program is the Midwest premiere of Adam Schoenberg’s Losing Earth, dedicated to percussionist and Northwestern alumnus Jacob Nissly and premiered by the San Francisco Symphony last October. Inspired by a New York Times article, the work pays homage to Earth’s incredible history and reflects on what we must do to preserve our planet.

William Bolcom (arr. Paul Dooley), Circus Overture
Adam Schoenberg, Losing Earth
James Stephenson, Symphony No. 2 (“Voices”)
