Capital Region Wind Ensemble

Side-By-Side Concert

It has long been the mission of the Capital Region Wind Enseble (CRWE) to serve as role models for young student musicians. As such, the CRWE would like to invite music educators to recommend students to join us for our second concert of the 2015 -2016 season.

The concert will be held Sunday, March 13, 2016, at 3:00 p.m. The selected students will play Alfred Reed’s Othello and one movement from Norman Dello Joio's Satiric Dances side-by-side with the musicians of CRWE.

All rehearsals and the concert will be at Schenectady County Community College. Rehearsal dates are:

  • Sunday, February 28, 5:15 - 8:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, March 6, 5:15 - 8:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 12, 9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Students will work with CRWE members in sectionals, rehearse with the full group and participate in master classes where interested students will be given the opportunity to perform solo literature in a workshop format. Lauren Winter, currently the principal horn of the Springfield and New Hampshire Symphonies, as well as area music professionals, will present the master classes.
