Houghton Wind Ensemble to Perform Spring Concert

March 7, 2024

On Wednesday, March 13 the Houghton Wind Ensemble will hold its Spring Concert at 7:30 pm in Wesley Chapel. The concert, titled Rapid Unscheduled Disassembly, aims to reflect the chaos of an exploding rocket and will feature works by Mackey, Whitacre, Van Zandt Lane, Barber, Ticheli, Giroux, Holsinger, and King.

The Perry High School Concert Band will also make a guest appearance, opening for the Wind Ensemble and joining them for the closing song.

I am very excited about this concert on two accounts. One is that the music is fantastic, exciting, and powerfully expressive. It is sure to impact all who hear it. The other is to share the stage with the Perry High School Concert Band under the direction of Houghton Alumnus, Dillon Hirsch.
