Muhlenberg College Wind Ensemble Concert on Saturday, April 23 will feature Ubi Caritas for brass ensemble, by music director Andrew Ardizzoia.
Location: Empie Theatre, Baker Center for the Arts, Muhlenberg College, Allentown PA
The Ubi Caritas for brass ensemble is drawn from a cappella choral works composed in the fall of 2019. The main musical materials are comprised primarily of a section cut from a piece commissioned by Iowa State University, and which uses the incipit of the ISU alma mater as a source for imitative counterpoint. Portions of the Catholic text which have a universal message resonate through the work.
Also, on April 27, 2022: Miles Salerni and the Muhlenberg Percussion Ensemble will perform a new work by Andrew Ardizzoia at 7:30 p.m., Empie Theatre, Baker Center for the Arts, Muhlenberg College. And, on May 12, Joshua Myers performs Alone from the Songs of Introspection, 7:00 p.m., Recital Hall, Baker Center for the Arts, Muhlenberg College.
