Event Description

The UVic Wind Symphony revisits “Timeless” pieces for wind band with beloved guest conductor and UVic School of Music Professor Emeritus, Dr. Gerald King. This musical journey showcases compositions — some not often performed — and styles of music that have had an integral place in the ongoing development of the contemporary wind ensemble. Works on the program include Esprit de Corps by Robert Jager, Incantation and Dance by John Barns Chance, Guy Woolfenden’s Gallimaufry, Danzon No. 2 by Arturo Marquez, Bravura by Charles Duble, and more!

Dr. Gerald King is Professor Emeritus in the School of Music at the University of Victoria. Internationally recognized as one of Canada’s most respected conductors, adjudicators, educators and keynote speakers, Dr. King is the recipient of numerous prestigious honours and awards. King’s background is varied—he is equally comfortable conducting wind ensembles, orchestras, and choirs. He is a former student of internationally renowned conductor, Maestro Kazuyoshi Akiyama. His conducting appearances with regional, national, international honour, and professional ensembles have been praised for performance quality, artistry, and creativity. In addition to conducting, King has many years of experience performing as a professional clarinetist. His professional career has taken him throughout Canada, the United States, Great Britain, Denmark, Sweden, Holland, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Japan, Mexico, Hong Kong, Australia, Switzerland, Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic.
