West Liberty University’s wind ensemble will perform its final concert for the 2013-2014 season at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, May 1.
The concert is free and open to the public and will be held in Elbin Auditorium, College Hall.
Directed by Dr. Matthew Inkster, the concert will feature iconic works such Karel Husa’s “Music for Prague” and Terry Riley’s “In C.” 2014 WLU Concerto Winner, Josh Garrett, also will be performing as part of the show.
“Please join us for this concert and enjoy this final performance from this great group of student musicians,” said Inkster.
Professor of Music and director of Instrumental Activities at West Liberty University, Inkster conducts the Wind Ensemble, the Wheeling Symphony Youth Orchestra and coordinates the brass area. Inkster is in demand as a guest conductor and clinician—most recently conducting honor and select groups in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, California, and New York.
He has specialized in conducting the music of our time, and he has led ensembles on several compact disc recordings of new music on American and European labels. His performances have been heard on national and regional NPR and worldwide on the BBC.
