Orchestra, ensemble, and singers join forces for ‘Winter Collage’ concert

Winter Collage Concert will feature Casper College Chamber Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Chamber Singers, and Collegiate Chorale


Beautiful music will fill the Wheeler Concert Hall Friday, March 5, as the Casper College Chamber Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Chamber Singers, and Collegiate Chorale will perform during the “Winter Collage” concert at 7 p.m. The concert can be viewed in person or online.

According to Zachary Vreeman, DMA, the Winter Collage will feature a wide array of music. “The wind ensemble will present works from 19th-century France and American minimalism, and the chamber singers will sing recent memorial-themed compositions. Those compositions include two pieces that memorialize events from World War I and another that has become a memorial to the earthquake and tsunami that led to the Fukushima disaster 10 years ago,” he said.

In February, the chamber orchestra had the opportunity to work with composer Stephanie Ann Boyd. The orchestra will perform the Wyoming premiere of Boyd’s newest piece, “Beyond the Gate,” featuring poetry recited with the orchestra.

The “Winter Collage Concert” is free and open to the public. The Wheeler Concert Hall is located in the Music Building on the Casper College campus. To view online, go to either the Casper College Music Department’s YouTube page or on Instagram at casper_college_bands.

The CC Wind Ensemble is under the direction of Joshua R. Mietz, DMA, the CC Chamber Orchestra is under the direction of Jennifer Cowell-DePaolo, and both the CC Collegiate Chorale and CC Chamber Singers are under the direction of Vreeman.
