Wind and Jazz Ensembles Set for Dec. 10 Concert

GENESEO, N.Y. - The Geneseo Wind Ensemble, Jazz Combo and Monday Night Jazz Ensemble will perform a joint concert Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. in the college's Wadsworth Auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public.

The Wind Ensemble, conducted by James Walker, distinguished service professor of music, will feature several marches in different guises, music that is march-like yet very different in style.

"Marches have always appealed to everyone and we have several different kinds on Friday's program, even a three-legged march," said Walker. "It's a fascinating study in how composers deal with march-like elements in music."

The Monday Night Jazz Ensemble will feature two new compositions by its director, David Gibson, who is a trombonist, composer and arranger.

For more information on the concert, call 585-245-5824.
