San Jose Wind Symphony Concert with Boherbuoy Brass and Reed Band at University Concert Hall

The San Jose Wind Symphony is set to perform at University Concert Hall this Thursday. This concert will be the kick-off of their one week concert tour through Ireland. They are also performing in Cork and Dublin.

The performance at University Concert Hall will be a special exchange concert; alongside the San Jose Wind Symphony will also perform the Boherbuoy Brass and Reed Band. The Musical conductor for this concert is Edward C. Harris.

The San Jose Wind Symphony (SJWS) is the West Coast’s premier wind symphony, providing high-quality musical performances for audiences of all ages. SJWS performs six to nine concerts a year at venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Each concert is a mixture of contemporary, classical and popular works for wind ensemble or symphonic band.

In its 61-year history, SJWS has earned a worldwide reputation for entertaining programs and superb musicianship. SJWS is an all-volunteer ensemble composed of approximately 55 woodwind, brass and percussion performers. The group rehearses once a week for two and a half hours; a typical concert requires six weeks of rehearsals. Although most SJWS members have day jobs in Silicon Valley, the group still achieves a consistently high level of musicianship.

Boherbuoy Brass and Reed Band. Established in 1850, in the Boherbuoy area of the city, the band is well known locally for their tradition and sense of community. For the last few years, they have competed in the National Band Championships run by the IABCB which has taken them all over the country, which they have won at intermediate and senior level three times since 2007.

The Repertoire of San Jose Wind Symphony’s performance includes, ‘American Overture for Band’ by Joseph Willcox Jenkins, ‘Acadiana, mvt 1 and 3’ by Frank Ticheli, ‘This Cruel Moon’ by John Mackey, ‘Concertino for Marimba, mvt 1’ by Paul Creston, ‘Galen Lemmon’ by Marimba Soloist, ‘An American in Paris’ by George Gershwin and finally, ‘The Footlifter March’ by Henry Fillmore.

The Boherbuoy Brass and Reed Band will perform a surprise of pieces by great composers.
