The UW Wind Symphony’s 2022-23 season opener features popular tunes that are particular favorites of Conductor Robert Belser, ranging from one of Gioachino Rossini’s “Sins of Old Age” through band standards and ending with a popular John Philip Sousa piece.

The program includes the Italian tarantella “La Danza” by Rossini; the classic band work “Variations on a Korean Folk Song” by J.B. Chance; a pensive slow tune, “Méditation from ‘Thais’” by Jules Massenet; the classic “Star Wars” piece “March of the Resistance” by John Williams; Americana at its best in “Old American Songs” by Aaron Copland; the often-heard melody “Clair de Lune” by Claude Debussy; a rhapsody of five eastern European folk songs in “Armenian Dances” by Alfred Reed; and the most popular American march, Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever.”
