Pitched at the extreme ends of the genre, the works on this program showcase the vast range of timbre and aesthetic the modern wind orchestra is capable of. From the elegant, almost serenade-like sensibility of the Gounod to the raw emotion and power of the Berlioz, the listener will be treated to a feast for the ears.

Charles Gounod (1818-93), Petite Symphonie for Winds, Op. 216 (1885)
Hector Berlioz (1803–69), Grande Symphonie funèbre et triomphale, Op. 15 (1840)
