When: Friday, November 21, 2014 8:00 PM - 9:15 PM
Where: Clarice Smith PAC : Dekelboum Concert Hall

UMD Wind Ensemble opens this concert with Frank Ticheli's regal Pacific Fanfare, and an adaptation of J.S. Bach's Fantasia and Fugue in C Minor.

In Leonard Bernstein's "Profanation" from Symphony No. 1, disjointed fragments of liturgical melodies evolve into a riotous pagan ritual to dramatize the biblical story of Jeremiah, a prophet who was mocked for predicting the destruction of Jerusalem.

The final piece on the program, H. Owen Reed's La Fiesta Mexicana, depicts a typical fiesta through adaptations of Mexican folk music.
