The Dordt University Wind Symphony, Campus Band, and Chamber Orchestra present their final concert of the semester. The Campus Band will perform a consortium premiere of Jeff Herwig’s “Nightmare.” This work was written for wind band and pre-recorded electronics and the DU Campus Band was one of only 10 commissioning ensembles. The Chamber Orchestra will highlight one of their own as bassist Cameron Steenhoek takes the stage to perform Henry Eccles’s “Sonata” for Bass and String Orchestra. Finally, the Wind Symphony will close the concert with David Maslanka’s monumental “Symphony No. 4.” Joining the Wind Symphony for performance of the Maslanka is Dr. Carrie Groenewold, Associate Professor of Organ and Keyboard Studies at Dordt. All of the instrumental ensembles are under the direction of Dr. Onsby C. Rose, Associate Professor of Music and Director of Instrumental Ensembles. The concert is open to the public but will be ticketed due to reduced capacity. Please contact the Music Office at 712-722-6222 or anna.bartlett@dordt.edu to reserve tickets.

Masks are required for those attending and seating groups will be socially distanced. Dordt University continues to monitor how COVID-19 affects our campus and community. Please visit dordt.edu/updates on the day of the event to see if there are any restrictions or cancellations.
