The Eastman Wind Ensemble is America’s leading wind ensemble. Its core of 50 performers includes undergraduate and graduate students at the Eastman School of Music. Frederick Fennell first formulated the general concept of the wind ensemble at Eastman in 1952 and under his leadership and Donald Hunsberger¡s the group became known as the pioneering force in the symphonic wind band movement in the United States and abroad.
Here, with the leadership of conductor Mark Scatterday and the brilliant performance from veteran trumpet extraordinaire, James Thompson, Eastman is back and better than ever with Danzante.
