UMD Wind Orchestra: Dragon Rhyme

The UMD Wind Orchestra presents Dragon Rhyme, its second concert of the 2014-15 season.

Through a consortium of American wind ensembles, UMWO has commissioned Where the Good Sounds Live by American composer Alvin Singleton, which was written to honor the life of Drexel University’s former band director Mike Moss. The concert also features Chen-Yi’s Dragon Rhyme, which conveys the auspicious and vibrant image of the dragon through colorful orchestration and melodies.
