The Nicholls Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Jason S. Ladd, will be performing a concert titled “From Here to Everywhere” in the Danos Theater on Thursday, October 24th at 7:30 pm.
The “Here” part of the program will feature Suite Louisiane by James Syler, a work commissioned by the Louisiana Chapter of the College Band Directors National Association. Eight current members of the Nicholls Wind Ensemble premiered the piece in January as members of the 2019 Louisiana Intercollegiate Band. The largest piece will be Star Wars Trilogy, which features some of the most well-known music from the original films including the title music.
The concert will also feature Nicholls professor Dr. Michael Bartnik on clarinet performing Viktor’s Tale, from the Steven Spielberg’s film The Terminal. Two student conductors, Brenna Barrera and Richard Galbreath, will also lead works by Anne McGinty and Cait Nishimura on the program.
The concert is free and open to the public.
