Chamber Winds to perform Thursday concert

Carson-Newman University’s Chamber Winds will present a concert Thursday, February 21, at 7:30 p.m. in Thomas Recital Hall.

Thursday night’s concert is free and open to the public. The performance will feature a trumpet quartet, a saxophone quartet, two brass quintets, a woodwind octet, and a percussion ensemble.

The concert’s directors include C-N’s Pat Bivens, brass ensembles; Dr. Richard Scruggs, woodwind ensembles; and Matthew Weyer, percussion ensemble.

C-N’s Chamber Winds, created in 2010, is comprised of select student musicians and exists for the purpose of providing students with advanced musical experiences.

Students are placed in chamber ensembles consisting of brass, woodwind, and percussion players. The literature, arranged for mixed instrumentation, is derived from various masterworks of Western musical styles and periods.

The individual ensembles vary in the number of performers from as few as four to five to large multiple brass choirs. Membership in the Chamber Winds is by audition or permission of the instructor, and students may earn one half hour of general education fine arts credit.

Thomas Recital Hall is located in Carson-Newman’s Tarr Music Center.
