Wind Ensemble Concert

In these uncertain times, the UNCA Wind Ensemble (directed by Fletcher Peacock) has faced many challenges this semester to perform music in person. Instead of a full wind ensemble, we split the group into a woodwind septet and a brass quintet. Each group meets once a week and has been incredibly flexible and positive throughout the experience. We have had to adapt our arrangement and safety measures several times to find a balance of safety and performance effectiveness. In our initial attempts, we used plexiglass shields and 12 feet of space between performers. This worked to an extent, but we had challenges with timing and balance between performers. Our next attempt was to rehearse outdoors, but we had difficulty finding a space that would allow for adequate spacing, distance from the campus community, and protection from the elements. What you see here is our most recent iteration. It allows for the students to perform without plexiglass shields or sound reinforcement in an isolated space to protect the campus community. Our final concert of the semester includes some brass quintet standards and an arrangement by one of the woodwind ensemble members. We hope you enjoy!
