The Queen’s University Wind Ensemble, directed by Dan Tremblay, is open to all members of the University community by audition. The Wind Ensemble usually meets twice a week and performs two times a year. In past years, conjunct concerts with other high-calibre Canadian wind ensembles and conductors were encouraged. Past collaborations included performances with the McGill Wind Symphony (Alain Cazes), Western University (Colleen Richardson), UofT (Gillian MacKay), and the Central Band of the Canadian Forces (Capt. Fullerton). The Wind Ensemble is performing a repertoire of classic, contemporary, and newly composed music. In Old Wine in New Bottles by Gordon Jacob, each movement is based on an Old English folk song, and the free modern treatment of the familiar tunes gives rise to its title. The same process is applied in David Maslanka's Give us This Day, a Short Symphony for Wind Ensemble. In one of Persichetti's most popular compositions, Divertimento for Band, the six short movements demonstrate rhythmic and contrapuntal savoir-faire blended neatly with tongue-in-cheek humor and lyrical nostalgia.
