2021 Band Consortium Commission

Composer Kevin Day announces an exciting new consortium for his upcoming work, Concerto for Wind Ensemble. This will be a substantial 5-movement symphonic work that highlights aspects of rhythm, groove, and feel, as it relates to his jazz, gospel, and hip hop background. The consortium is led by the University of Georgia Hodgson Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Cynthia Johnston Turner, and will be premiered by the HWE in Fall 2021.
