Washington and Lee’s Lenfest Center Presents November Concerts

The Lenfest Center at Washington and Lee University has two musical performances in the first half of November. Both events are free and open to the public; no tickets are required.

W&L Wind Ensemble Presents “Reckoning”

The Washington and Lee University Wind Ensemble presents its fall concert, “Reckoning,” led by Chris Dobbins, assistant professor of music, on Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. in the Wilson Concert Hall on the W&L campus.

The concert is filled with music that attempts to understand different parts of the human condition. Musically, the evening will reckon with religion, death, safety, humor, history and other topics.

Jordan Kinsey is the guest conductor, and the music of David Maslanka, Steve Danyew, Michael Markowski and guest composers, Nicole Piunno and John Costa will be the aural guide.

The concert will be available to watch live here.

The performance will include a winning composition from the first annual W&L University Chamber Orchestra Composition Contest, as well as “Serenade for Strings in C Major, Op. 48” by Tchaikovsky.
