The University of Texas Wind Ensemble
Jerry Junkin, Conductor
Adam Schoenberg’s Symphony No. 2

Presented in partnership with College of Fine Arts Visiting Artists Chair, Butler School of Music, and KMFA-FM

The University of Texas Wind Ensemble performs the world premiere of renowned composer Adam Schoenberg’s Symphony No. 2.

Adam Schoenberg has quickly become one of the best known and most frequently performed American composers of his generation. Full of “mystery and sensuality” (The New York Times), Schoenberg’s music embraces both warm tonality and gentle chromaticism and has been heralded as “open, bold, and optimistic” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution).

Conducted by Jerry F. Junkin, The University of Texas Wind Ensemble has firmly established itself as one of America’s elite wind bands. Active in the area of commissioning new music, the group has premiered performances of works by composers like John Corigliano, Michael Daugherty, Donald Grantham, David Maslanka, and Dan Welcher.
