This is the final concert in our series exploring music written for Wind Band, bringing us from 2000 to the present day. It includes three pieces that were commissioned by Beenham Wind Orchestra, the first, in 2002, by local musician and composer Torbjorn Hultmark, the second, in 2010, by young composer Lloyd Coleman and the third by Thomas Gibbs who wrote his piece, Chorales, in 2016 for our Conductor, Robert Roscoe, as a gift for his 70th Birthday. We will also be playing pieces by renown American composers Richard Saucedo, Samuel Hazo and Eric Whitacre, whose work 'Cloudburst' requires some audience participation, and a suite for Wind Band by the British composer Daniel Basford.
This concert is dedicated to the memory of Ian Hulin who was a member of our flute section from 2001 until his death in 2015. He made several arrangements for Beenham Wind Orchestra and we will be playing two movements from his arrangement of Monteverdi's Vespers 1610.
