USF Wind Ensemble: Wind Band as a Separate Reality

Event Type: Music
Facility: School of Music (MUS)
Presented By: School of Music
Description: 
Winds of Nagual by Michael Colgrass is one of the most important works written for the wind band in the last thirty years. Colgrass calls his composition "A Music Fable for Wind Ensemble on the Writings 
of Carlos Castaneda." Set in northwest Mexico, the story tells of Castaneda’s fourteen-year quest for understanding of life through the study of shamanism with a master named don Juan Matis (a Yaqui 
Indian).  Any person familiar with Castaneda’s book, A Separate Reality, will recognize aspects of the journey that occurs in the story. Whether true or fiction, the reading is fascinating. Other works to be 
featured will include Designs, Images and Textures by Leslie Bassett. This is a descriptive work of five diverse concrete arts including Oil Painting and Bronze Sculpture. Several other compositions will 
be included on this exciting and colorful concert.
