The program features David Maslanka’s Quintet for Winds No. 3 as well as original WindSync arrangements of works by Ravel, Bernstein and Respighi. “David Maslanka’s music has become our signature style. He writes modern American music that sounds cinematic and grand in scope. We’ll also be performing our own arrangement of Ravel’s Bolero. The piece was originally written for a large orchestra. The centerpiece is a snare drum, and each of us alternates playing the drum and picking up [other] instruments. It’s very exciting. Both of those were big hits in China and Taiwan, where we were touring in December.”
