Middlebury Community Wind Ensemble returns with two concerts

CHRISTOPHER FOSTER WILL play the trumpet solo in a salute to Harry James.

MIDDLEBURY — After a two-year hiatus, the Middlebury Community Wind Ensemble returns with concerts Dec. 2 and 7. Conductor Jerome Shedd has chosen a program that includes works by American band composers John O’Reilly and Ed Huckeby, and the great band classic “Folk Song Suite” by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

The young soprano Gwendolyn Delgadillo will sing two early songs by Richard Strauss. And Christopher Foster will play the trumpet solo in a salute to Harry James.

The program will conclude with the final two sections of “Pictures at an Exhibition,” including the “Great Gate at Kyiv,” in recognition of the suffering of the Ukrainian people.

Performances are at Mount Abraham Union High School on Friday, Dec. 2, and at the Mahaney Center for the Arts, Middlebury College, on Wednesday, Dec. 7. Both performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and are free. No tickets required.
