University band present in an international Internet broadcast
7 September 2020
The DePauw University Band recently starred in an encore performance on Wind & Rhythm, an international syndicated Internet broadcast dedicated to wind music.
“Episode # 540: The Ultimate Wind Instrument” includes an ensemble performance, with Carla Edwards as the organ soloist in the fourth movement, “IV. Toccata (Perpetual Motion)” from Joseph Jongen’s “Symphonie Concertante”.
Originally composed for organ and orchestra, this band arrangement was completed by James Beckel, professor of trombone at the DePauw School of Music, and is featured on the University Band’s ninth compact disc, “United Artists”.
The university band is heard alongside the Dallas Wind Symphony and Empire Brass.
The broadcast, along with all other Wind & Rhythm broadcasts, can be heard on www.windandrhythm.com.
