Omaha, NE—The Nebraska Wind Symphony will perform their next concert of the season this Sunday, “Gardens-Flowers-Bugs.” The ensemble comprises all volunteers, but that doesn’t limit its size.

This concert, evidenced by the title, is inspired by the various images of spring, all depicted in music.

“Gardens-Flowers-Bugs” features a few recent American compositions, like “To Dance in the Secret Garden,” by Robert W. Smith, “Azalea City March,” by Alan Carter, and MacTaggart’s own “Flight of the Monarch.” The concert will also showcase 2018 NWS Memorial Scholarship/Concerto competition winner, Samuel  Kalhorn, who will perform the 3rd movement of Hummel’s Trumpet concerto. One highlight of the afternoon is a piece called “The Incredible Journey.”

And, there’s some interesting instrumentation.

The Nebraska Wind Symphony’s concert, “Gardens-Flowers-Bugs” is this Sunday at 3pm at the Omaha Conservatory of Music. For more information or tickets, visit Nebraska Wind Symphony.com.
