Vanderbilt Wind Symphony

Thomas Verrier, conductor

With Amy Jarman, soprano, and Mark Whatley, baritone

The Music of BMI Composer in Residence Robert Beaser

The wind symphony is joined by singers Jarman and Whatley for The End of Knowing, by Robert Beaser, who will be in residence all week working with Blair musicians and composers. Commissioned by a consortium of 27 bands across the United States, The End of Knowing is a powerful setting of texts from poets Seamus Heaney, Alfred Noyes, Joseph Brodsky, Gjertrud Schnackenberg, Chidiock Tichborne, Theodore Worozbyt and James Joyce. Beaser describes the work as “a dramatic meditation on the nexus of religion, politics and the fragile human condition.” The wind symphony will also perform John Mackey’s Wine Dark Sea-Symphony for Band.
