Wind Ensemble | Setnor Ensemble Series

The Syracuse University Wind Ensemble performs under the direction of Dr. Bradley P. Ethington. The Syracuse University Wind Ensemble will feature a work composed in remembrance of the Syracuse University students who lost their lives in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. The work, Riverwalk, was composed by composition major Carl Johnson ’90 shortly after the tragic event and was premiered by the Wind Ensemble in 1989. It is based on Alfred Tennyson’s poem A Farewell. This will be only the second performance of the work. Riverwalk was originally commissioned by the SU chapters of Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma, the University’s band service organizations, and will be conducted by graduate student Nieves Villasenor.
