UWF Dr. Grier Williams School of Music Presents Chamber Winds Teachers and Friends Concert 


The Dr. Grier Williams School of Music at the University of West Florida will present a Chamber Winds Faculty and Friends Concert on Monday March 28 at 7:30 p.m.. The show will take place at Rolfs Music Hall in the Center for Fine and Performing Arts, Building 82, on the Pensacola campus.

The Chamber Winds concert will feature musicians from the UWF and PSO faculty on pieces celebrating the rich repertoire of chamber wind ensembles. Mozart’s “Serenade in C minor” is a 4-movement piece from the Harmoniemusik tradition and was composed in 1782. “Seascape”, Op. 53, was composed by Ruth Gipps for the Portia Wind Ensemble in 1960; Gipps lived on the English coast in her youth and the piece depicts the different moods of the sea. The Portia Wind Ensemble was an all-female chamber ensemble active in and around London in the mid-20th century. The program will close with “Divertissement” by Emile Bernard which is an incredibly beautiful three-movement work composed for the Society of Wind Instruments in Paris around 1888.

The ensemble is composed of Sarah Jane Young and Stephanie Riegle, flute; Matt Fossa and Amy Selkirk, oboe; Richard Jernigan and Newell Hutchinson, clarinet; Kristina Nelson and Abigail Walker, bassoon; and Stuart Kinney and Jodi Graham Wood, horn. The ensemble will be led by Dr. Brittan Braddock, Director of UWF Groups.

The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. For more information or to reserve tickets, please contact the CFPA Box Office at 850.857.6285 or online at uwf.edu/tickets.
