Great Plains Chamber Winds in Concert at Peru State College
At 7:00 pm in the Jindra Recital Hall, The Great Plains Chamber Winds presented a most enjoyable evening of music.
This popular wind quintet group formed in 2003 in Lincoln and is part of the Lincoln Arts Council. The group features Bassoonist Joyce Besch; Horn player Lawrence Dietrich; Clarinetist Martin Gardner; Oboist Susan Hraban; English Horn player Lee Lowry; and Flautist Anne Sheedy Gardner, who presently teaches at Peru State College.
I recorded two of the evenings many excellent pieces. First, listen to the beautiful opening selection from the concert, Second Suite in F by Gustav Holst.
The second selection--a Tango, Por Una Cabeza by Carlos Gardel--features Joyce Besch's wonderful work with her bassoon.
These groups sound grand in the new recital hall, so watch the video and make sure to attend the next event.
