Redemption: An Unforgettable Musical Journey

November 7, 2023

In an upcoming concert named “Redemption,” the Presbyterian College Wind Ensemble and Chamber Winds, conducted by Dr. Giovani Briguente, will lead the audience on a remarkable musical journey.

The concert opens with Mendelssohn’s delightful “Scherzo,” setting a joyful and enjoyable tone. Holst’s “A Moorside Suite” continues the cheerful mood with its “Scherzo,” accompanied by a Nocturne and March that add depth to the experience.

Brade’s Renaissance suite, “Five Court Dances,” evokes charming and nostalgic memories from a distant past. Robert W. Smith’s “Concert Variations” begins mournfully but evolves into joyful variations, portraying the journey from despair to hope.

The highlight of the evening is Dr. Giovani Briguente’s clarinet concerto, “Of Redemption,” featuring the brilliant soloist Staff Sgt. Nicholas Thompson from “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band. This concerto takes you on a profound journey, where the clarinet represents the main character’s struggle with despair butachieving divine joy at the end.

Following the performance, you can meet the musicians in the lobby and enjoy refreshments provided by Tom Scott & Jane Mahon.

“Redemption” is not just a concert; it’s an emotional journey that you won’t want to miss. Join others in the community for an evening of music and hope and experience the power of redemption through music.

This free event is open to all with casual attire suggested. See you on November 16 at 7:30 pm at Belk Auditorium on PC’s campus in Clinton.
