McMichael Gallery concert
Last Sunday, the Taffanel Wind Ensemble performed at the McMichael Gallery, an annual event for the group. The group choose to play a very challenging set of pieces which the audience enjoyed. Beethoven's Variations on a theme by Mozart based on La Ci Darem La Mano from Don Giovanni as well as Three Pieces for Three Woodwinds by Robert Washburn were two of the favourites. Robert Washburn, an American composer wrote music for the opening ceremonies of the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics.
The group is looking to returning in May 2009 for its next concert on the Sunday afternoon series.
Now that you have seen the group, I am sure that you are looking forward to reading more about the individual members: Zach Moss, flute,:Nora Mular-Richards, bassoon and Bill Krangle, clarinet. Look for the next installment.
