University Wind Orchestra
Kieran O’Riordan conductors Stephanie Jenkins Anniversaries William Walton Johannesburg Festival Overture Richard Wagner Trauersinfonie Mark Camphouse A Movement for Rosa Johann De Meij Symphony No. 1 ‘The Lord of the Rings’ The University Wind Orchestra celebrates the anniversaries of composers, pieces and events in a concert of contrasts. William Walton described his Overture as ‘a non-stop gallop...slightly crazy, hilarious and vulgar’. Mark Camphouse’s compelling tribute to the civil rights activist Rosa Parks (born in 1913) is balanced by the more sombre Trauersinfonie, Wagner’s tribute to Weber. Finally, in its 25th year Johann de Meij’s epic Symphony No. 1 provides a striking finale. The concert will finish at approximately 9.30pm
