UMBC Wind Ensemble with Daniel Bernard Roumain
The Department of Music presents the UMBC Wind Ensemble, directed by Brian Kaufman, a large chamber group of approximately 40 musicians that performs great wind repertoire from octets to larger masterworks.
This concert will feature Emmy-nominated composer and violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain (aka DBR) who is noted by major orchestras and arts institutions across the globe for blending funk, rock, hip-hop, and classical music into an energetic and experiential sonic form. “About as omnivorous as a contemporary artist gets” (New York Times), DBR is perhaps the only composer whose collaborations traverse the worlds of Philip Glass, Bill T. Jones, Savion Glover, Lady Gaga. UMBC’s Wind Ensemble and DBR will give the world premiere of the wind ensemble version of his Voodoo Violin Concerto. Additional music by DBR will be performed alongside works by Bach and Whitacre.
Admission is free.
