University of Dubuque Heritage Center: John and Alice Butler Hall
Dubuque, Iowa
Sunday, 7 May 2017 - 2:30 PM
The University of Dubuque Wind Ensemble and conductor Nicholas Bratcher will perform composer Geoffrey Gordon's new work, ROCKS, as part of a concert at the Heritage Center for the Performing Arts, in Dubuque, Iowa.

ROCKS is a work in five movements for symphonic winds, brass, piano, harp, percussion and double bass, inspired by the textures and sonic implications of five rocks: glassy, volcanic obsidian; dry, crisp slate; luxurious blue lapis; magical amethyst; and intense, burning sulfur.

ROCKS was commissioned by a consortium of 21 universities in the United States and Cambridge University in the United Kingdom.
