The Frostburg State University Department of Music will present the FSU Wind Ensemble in concert on Saturday, Dec. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center.

Conducted by Dr. Philip Klickman, the ensemble will open the program with “American Overture for Band” by Joseph Wilcox Jenkins. Next, an enchanting winter’s day comes to life in “A Winter’s Dawn” by rising star composer John Fannin. The ensemble will then play “Doctor Who: Through Time and Space” by Murray Gold in memory of the late FSU physics professor, Dr. Steven Luzader.

Several works by Percy Grainger will follow: “Handel in the Strand,” an arrangement by Edwin Franko Goldman; the composer’s masterpiece, “Lincolnshire Posy,” a 16-minute-long work composed of six movements – “Lisbon (Sailor’s Song),” “Horkstow Grange (The Miser and His Man – a Local Tragedy),” “Rufford Park Poachers (Poaching Song),” “The Brisk Young Sailor (Who Returned to Wed His True Love),” “Lord Melbourne (War Song)” and “The Lost Lady Found (Dance Song)” – each adapted from folk songs Grainger collected on a 1905-1906 trip to Lincolnshire, England; and “Irish Tune From County Derry.”

The concert will close with “Americans We,” one of the most popular marches by Henry Fillmore.

Tickets for the performance are $10 for general admission, $5 for seniors and veterans, $3 for students and free for children 12 and younger.
