The Symphonic Wind Ensemble and Concert Band will perform the music of composer Steven Bryant, including his jubilant overture Radiant Joy, two poetic ballads —Nothing Gold Can Stay and Dusk, and Ecstatic Waters, a techno-infused suite which Bryant calls “a juxtaposition of opposing musical and extra-musical elements.” Bryant’s three-day residency includes a composer’s forum and rehearsal.
