Dr. Reed Gallo, director of Lander University’s Wind Ensemble, said that the upcoming concert will make big demands on the group’s percussion section, but “they seem like they’re accepting the challenge very well.” In the photo, they are seen rehearsing for the show.


The Tuesday, Feb. 26, concert by Lander University’s Wind Ensemble will feature dance music from around the world.

The show begins at 8 p.m., in the Josephine B. Abney Cultural Center Auditorium, with a rendition of German composer Carl Maria von Weber’s “Invitation to the Dance,” a selection chosen in part so that ensemble director Dr. Reed Gallo could challenge his new clarinetists.

The difficulty level rises further with “Three Dance Episodes from ‘Spartacus,’” by Soviet-Armenian composer Aram Kachaturian, which Gallo calls the most challenging selection for the ensemble as a whole.

What Gallo describes as “the darker theme portion of the concert” begins with a performance of “Night Dances for Wind Ensemble,” by American composer Bruce Yurko. It will be followed by the Mediterranean folk dance influenced “Satiric Dances,” by American composer Norman Dello Joio.

Gallo said that the “rhythms and color are very Spanish or Latino-inspired” in the following selection, “Symphonic Dance No. 3 from ‘Fiesta,’” by American composer Clifton Williams.

The international flavor continues with English composer Malcolm Arnold’s “Four Scottish Dances,” and with Soviet-Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich’s “Folk Dances,” which Gallo calls “a great closer.”

Gallo invited area music lovers to join him for “a toe-tapping good time.”

The concert is free and open to the public.
