Mallory Thompson, conductor

The Symphonic Wind Ensemble opens the academic year with Leonard Bernstein’s rousing overture to Candide, followed by Jennifer Higdon’s wind arrangement of her setting of the Latin chant O Magnum Mysterium. Higdon shares that the work is a “tribute to the wonderful mystery of how music moves us.” The program continues with Ryan Lindveit’s evocative Mysterious Butterflies, composed as a tribute to the founder of neuroscience, Santiago Ramón y Cajal. Lindveit explains that he was “deeply inspired by the idea that the human quest for understanding the mysteries of life can—even should—be beautiful and elegant, like a flower garden filled with butterflies.” Concluding the concert is Paul Hindemith’s classic Symphonic Metamorphosis on Themes of Carl Maria von Weber, as transcribed by Keith Wilson.
