January 24, 2023
Northwood’s Philharmonic Orchestra was accompanied by Wind Symphony, Northwood’s top band, in a full orchestra performance of “Overture to Marriage of Figaro” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This piece was conducted by Northwood instrumental music director Ben Case. The accompaniment of the wind instruments brought out the exceptional performance by the orchestra, creating a unified sound while also showcasing different sections.
“There is a certain level of repertoire available for full orchestras,” Case said. “The wind players today are members of wind symphony, the top of four bands we have, and occasionally combine with the strings and get to play professional level music.”
