Utah State University's Wind Quartet Hits the Road


Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012


USU faculty woodwind quintet, Logan Canyon Winds
The Logan Canyon Winds, a faculty woodwind quintet based at Utah State University's Logan campus, is featured in concert at Star Hall in Moab Nov. 27. The quintet is joined by USU students in the Caine Wind Quintet for the concert.

Utah State University’s Logan Canyon Winds and the Caine Wind Quintet travel to Moab, Utah, to perform at Star Hall Nov. 27 at 7:30 p.m. The concert is free and all are invited.

 

“This trip to eastern Utah is a nice way to encapsulate the mission of the Caine College of the Arts,” said Nicholas Morrison, clarinetist in Logan Canyon Winds. “We will perform at an elementary and secondary school, visit the regional Price and Moab campuses and work with the students there. This is living what the mission says.”

 

The concert features Logan Canyon Winds, CCA’s faculty wind quintet, and the Caine Wind Quintet, a scholarship group for students, performing individually and together. Logan Canyon Winds will perform Serenade for Wind Quintet by Ferenc Farkas and the Caine Wind Quintet will perform Allegro ben Moderator from Quintet, op. 43 by Carl Nielsen. Both will perform And the Ink’s Hardly Dry (ca. 11:15 a.m.) by Mark Emile and Three Sacred Women by Jeff Scott.

 

Scott, a member of the Imani Winds quintet, was commissioned by Logan Canyon Winds to create Three Sacred Women. Scott is highly influenced by the music of other cultures and, in this piece, each movement is based on female deities in Egyptian, Brazilian and African culture.

 

“This is really significant that all three movements are about women and come from other cultures,” said Morrison. “The American concert halls are lacking diversity in culture and gender.”

 

The quintet members are Leslie Timmons, flute; Bonnie Schroeder, oboe; Nicholas Morrison, clarinet; Carolyn Bodily, bassoon; and Steven Park, horn.

 

Logan Canyon Winds is supported by USU’s Department of Music and the Caine College of the Arts. A generous gift from Wilford and Marjorie Gardner supports the commissioning and outreach projects of the quintet.

 

“We would never be able to commission music without the very generous Gardners,” said Morrison.

 

For more information, contact the CCA Box Office in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s Logan campus, call 435-797-8022 or see the college website.

 

While the concert in Moab is free, donations will be accepted at the door with proceeds supporting the USU Moab Student Scholarship Fund.
