Sometime in the past, the season of Autumn earned a reputation as a melancholy, bittersweet time of the year. Perhaps the reason for some of the gloominess might be the realization that while the leaves turn brilliant, beautiful colors, we know they will die and fall to the ground, leaving a stark foreshadowing of the coming Winter.
This week on Wind & Rhythm we’ll prove that Autumn is a welcome respite from the summer heat and a time to enjoy our environment with Wind Band music that paints our imagination with the colors of the season.
