The Wellington Wind Symphony proudly presents the final concert of our
2023-2024 Season:

April 28 2024 Poster

What’s “boomba,” you ask? Is it a new dance craze? Something really, really loud? Well, you’ll have to come to the concert and find out! (Hint: it might involve one or some of us doing something crazy!) This WWS concert is just plain FUN. Kevin Day’s “Havana,” (will there be cigars? Yeah) and Alfred Reed’s beloved, “El Camino Real.” And, would a concert really be ‘fun’ if it didn’t have some John Williams? We think not!

  • The last composer on our program we are very excited to talk about is Michael Barry @ifididig 

Barry wrote Boomba, which was the inspiration for our concert! On top of that, he will be visiting us to attend our concert, travelling all the way from California to do so! We are so excited to meet Barry, and to hear more about the work from him before our performance!

Barry has built a career as a composer working on music for games, films, T.V., and the concert hall. He has many accomplishments that are notable, only one of which being a close working relationship with legendary composer Alan Menken. 
Learn more about Michael by reading his biography here: https://michaelbarrycomposer.com/biography/

His work for concert band, Boomba, is an exciting, high energy piece of music that will feature our Eb Clarinet player. It has a killer groove throughout, and is guaranteed to keep your toes tapping. We know you'll love it as much as we do!

Join us this Sunday to hear 'Boomba' and meet the composer as well!

"Sanctuary" is a lovely work in two movements - "Winter's End" and "Everyone Danced." They explore a wide range of emotions, and move from somber but hope filled to expressive and joyful!
