The Orange County Wind Symphony (OCWS) will present the third concert of its 2014-15 season on Sunday, February 8, 2015, featuring music based on the idea of “Themes and Variations”.  The program begins with The Variations on a Korean Folksong by John Barnes Chance. Arnold Schoenberg composed his “Theme and Variations, Op. 43a” in a somewhat tonal manner and, in his words, giving the bands “something better to play”. The first half concludes with the “Variations on America” by Charles Ives. Mark Camphouse composed “Whatsover Things…” as a tribute to John P. Paynter, Director of Bands at Northwestern University. The concert concludes with the “Fantasies on a Theme of Haydn” by Norman Dello Joio.

The Orange County Wind Symphony is a regional semi-professional Wind Ensemble serving a metropolitan area of approximately 3 million people. The OCWS is honored to be part of the Anaheim community and in July 2011 was designated, along with the OCS as the Resident Wind Symphony for the City of Anaheim. The Wind Symphony is led by Dr. Anthony Mazzaferro, an accomplished Wind Band & Orchestral conductor, who currently serves on the faculties of the music departments of Fullerton College, Cal Poly Pomona, and Irvine Valley College.
