FIU Wind Ensemble: Inspired by JoniWed 10/05/2022
This concert season is inspired by one of Joni Mitchell’s most poignant songs, “Both Sides Now.” Under the baton of Dr. Brenton Alston, the FIU Wind Ensemble proudly presents the Southeastern Regional Premiere of Jules Pegram's work, Neon Nights. This orchestral showpiece, will take the listener on an ever-changing journey through a shimmering, cosmopolitan sound world.
The song describes the dualities experienced in our lives of it’s “up and down(s),” from “give and take“ and from “win and lose” concluding in the powerful refrain:‘ ’It’s cloud’s illusions I recall-I really don’t know life at all.” It is in that spirit that the music on each concert will reflect these dualities we face everyday.
