The Duke University Wind Symphony’s Fall 2021 concert cycle concluded on November 18 with a program entitled “Points of Reflection.” The music on this concert was inspired by a quote from the program note of “Stillwater,” by Kelijah Dunton:
“We as people forget sometimes that we are so much more deep and vast beneath our hard surfaces. We work, we go to school, we take care of our families, we deal with the struggles of the day-to-day routine militantly. But, if we just take a moment to listen within ourselves; we discover our passions, our longings, and our sense of belonging.”
This concert aimed to offer all in attendance the opportunity to reflect on these aspects of life. View the program at https://music.duke.edu/sites/music.duke.edu/files/documents/Wind_Symphony_11_18.pdf.
J. Benjamin Jones was interim director of the Duke University Wind Symphony for the Fall 2021 semester and conducts the ensemble in this concert.
