As part of the Scholarship Benefit Concert Series, the UNC Wind Ensemble and Symphony Band will perform alongside the West Forsyth High School Band at 7:30 pm in Memorial Hall. General Admission Tickets are $10, and UNC student/faculty tickets are $5.
The Wind Ensemble, conducted by Evan Feldman, is composed of approximately fifty-five of the finest wind and percussion performers at the university. Although its members come from many different states and a variety of fields of study, they are drawn together by the desire to perform serious wind literature. The Wind Ensemble has received praise from composers and reviewers for its artistic performances and imaginative programming that regularly features collaborations with major composers and guest artists.
The West Forsyth Wind Ensemble is the premier wind and percussion ensemble at West Forsyth High School. This auditioned group consists of students in grades 9-12, many of whom are also members of the various All County, District and State Bands, Orchestras and Jazz Ensembles. This ensemble has performed in a multitude of venues across the east coast as well as been a featured performer at the NC Music Educator’s Conference.
