The University of Jamestown Wind Ensemble will present its spring concert, “Folk Music of the British Isles and America,” at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, May 2 in the Reiland Fine Arts Center’s DeNault Auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public.
The concert will take listeners on a journey through England, Scotland, Ireland and America, featuring folk music from different time periods and various styles. Senior Logan Caldwell will play bagpipes for one piece. Highlights include “Highland Cathedral,” “Chester,” “Lincolnshire Posy,” “A Dakota Rhapsody,” and “Irish Washerwoman.”
A reception will follow the performance.
“After a successful North Dakotan and Minnesotan tour in February, the band has put together this great and diverse program,” says Dr. Laura Zamzow, conductor. “We hope the audience enjoys this wonderful evening of folk music played by our outstanding student musicians and community members.”
