Guest Artists: Chamber Winds Louisville
The musicians of Chamber Winds Louisville enjoy sharing their enthusiasm for the performance of wind repertoire in all of its dimensions. Concerts typically include chamber music, solos with the ensemble, and full-cast concert band works. The repertoire is diverse, spanning harmoniemusik to the present, and often including at least one piece by a composer of whom audiences should be reminded (Mennin, Creston, Persichetti, Grainger, Stravinsky, Sousa, Fillmore, Shostakovich and others). The integration of full ensemble with chamber pieces brings great variety to the repertoire and keeps the listener engaged in the concert event. Frederick Speck, the director, is surrounded by ensemble members who are educators (both in music and other disciplines), professional musicians, and high-level performers whose business careers are in non-music fields. All are drawn together because of their appreciation for the fellowship of ensemble performance and the joy of sharing it with appreciative audiences.
