GWINNETT SYMPHONY WIND ORCHESTRA
Dr. Thomas Martin Wubbenhorst, the former director of bands at Georgia State University from 1991-2000, conducts the newly formed Gwinnett Symphony Wind Orchestra. Membership is by audition with the conductor or by invitation. The ensemble will draw literature from the symphonic band, wind ensemble and military band traditions and will vary in size accordingly from as few as 18 to upwards of 50 players. The GSWO will present three concerts, shared with the new Gwinnett Symphony Jazz Orchestra, in its inaugural 2015-16 season. The first concert is scheduled for Saturday, November 7th at 7p at the First Christian Church of Atlanta in Tucker, GA. A program will be drawn from classic through contemporary music for winds and percussion, and will include a performance of Terry Riley’s landmark composition IN C.
