Dances with Winds
Thursday, May 15, Wolf Theater
Saturday, May 17, Lakewood Cultural Center
The CWE gets in step with energetic and expressive dance music from around the globe, including the strut of New Orleans in J'ai ete au bal by Grantham, the Mexican Danzon no. 2 by Arturo Marquez, Festive Overture by Shostakovich, Irish Tune from County Derry by Grainger, and the contemporary sounds of John Mackey's Strange Humors and David Maslanka's Quintet,with guest artists, the Hannah Kahn Dance Company.
Many thanks to our wonderful guest composer Steven Bryant for his beautiful new composition, all stars are love, and for appearing with the Colorado Wind Ensemble on April 6. It was an additional thrill for us to perform Ecstatic Waters with Steven performing the electronics parts! Thanks so much, Steven, for being with us - a great honor and a wonderful time for all!

"This was the first performance of the Colorado Wind Ensemble that I have heard . . . I came away wondering why this organization is not better known. They play so well that they can certainly promote its wind ensemble repertoire. There are members of this ensemble who are absolutely stellar members of some of the community orchestras in the Denver metro area, and when they are combined as members of the Colorado Wind Ensemble, this organization truly excels. Their playing is intensely musical, and there is no question that they take great pride in being true musicans." -- Robin McNeil
