The UMBC Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Richard Spece, will perform a special program featuring a multi-disciplinary piece, A Symphony of Fables, in conjunction with art and animation created by students of Introduction to Animation, taught by Lynn Tomlinson.
A Symphony of Fables is made up of five programmatic movements, each rooted in a different fable –“The Lion and the Mouse”, “The Pied Piper of Hamelin”, “The Tortoise and the Hare”, “The Ugly Duckling” and “The Three Billy Goats Gruff”– which will be accompanied by visual interpretations, created by the students, projected onto a screen directly behind the musicians. The artworks are original pieces with styles adapted to convey the tone and timbre of the music, and highlight the students’ progress throughout the semester.
Admission to this event is free.
