Building a Legacy of Excellence

Greetings Friends of TPWO,

The next Twin Ports Wind Orchestra concert is “Music of the Americas" on Saturday, June 1 at 7:00 p.m. at Weber Music Hall. Are you a close follower of TPWO? You may remember we had to cancel a concert in March 2023 because of impacts from a large snowstorm. We're bringing back some of those Sounds of South America in this concert and incorporating selections from Star Wars by American composer John Williams and music by visiting composer and conductor Nubia Jaime Donjuan.

Nubia Jaime Donjuan composed Maso Ye’eme, a fusion piece inspired by La Danza del Venado Yaqui (from the Sonoran Desert) and the popular Cuban genre of danzón. Jaime Donjuan navigates between two worlds as a performer (cellist) and composer. Proud of her roots and being raised by her musician father and historian mother, she has adopted the artistic and cultural expressions of her surroundings to create her music, always taking inspiration from different elements of nature. Jaime Donjuan has been the first woman to win the Arturo Márquez Composition Contest for Chamber Orchestra, with first place for the work Maso Ye´eme. At the TPWO concert, she will talk about Masoye’ Eme, her recent composition for band. We are so excited to learn from and perform with her!!

Thank you for your interest and support! Hosting, learning from, and making music with guest soloists and ensembles enriches both the community ensemble members and the audience. Your support in all forms helps the Twin Ports Wind Orchestra. Thank you in advance for sharing our concert information with people you know, attending when you can, and perhaps through an additional donation to help the music keep coming.

It truly is so nice to gather as a community ensemble to learn and make music together.
