The San Antonio Community Wind Ensemble (SACWE) will perform its second concert of the 2022-2023 season from 2:30-5:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5 in the Texas A&M University-San Antonio auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
The concert will feature music by composers like Jack Stamp, Antonín Leopold Dvořák, William Pitts and other composers of various styles, according to Texas Public Radio.
“Every concert we program and perform will have a theme. The music we chose for this concert has very polarizing styles; louds and softs, fasts and slows and different rhythms that normally are not performed together create a very wide range of listening for the audience,” SACWE Music Director Albert Aguilar said.
As stated on the ensemble’s website, SACWE prides itself on being “fully inclusive and deliberately diverse.” The ensemble features students, veterans, and any other San Antonio community members interested in playing and performing wind ensemble music.
Aguilar said he hopes bringing SACWE to A&M-San Antonio will inspire students to “perform in an advanced concert band setting after the high school level.”
The ensemble will return to A&M-San Antonio auditorium for two more concerts this spring on April 5 and May 21.
