The concert opens with Cindy McTee’s lively and energetic Circuits (1990), followed by Stravinsky’s Circus Polka (Composed for a Young Elephant), which was originally orchestrated for a ballet put on by Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus featuring both human and elephant performers. Next on the program is Paul Hindemith’s monumental Symphonic Metamorphosis on Themes of Carl Maria von Weber, a splashy and colorful work that is one of the composer’s most popular (and was transcribed for winds by his longtime Yale colleague Keith Wilson). Following intermission, the MWE will perform Kurt Weill’s Little Threepenny Music, highlighting music from The Threepenny Opera. The concert concludes with Meadows music professor Derrick Horne’s thrilling Color Fusion for electric guitar and wind ensemble, featuring Professor Horne as soloist. To buy tickets, visit For more information, call 214.768.2787.
