The Orange County Wind Symphony (OCWS) will present the fifth concert of its 2014-15 season on Sunday, April 12, 2015, featuring music by composers of the Romantic Era. The concert will feature two works by Felix Mendelssohn, The Overture for Winds and the Concertpiece No. 2 for Two Clarinets. OCWS Principal Clarinets Christy Mazzaferro & Monica Cummins will be the featured soloists for this performance. Wagner composed the Trauermusik as a funeral march for the return of the remains of Carl Maria Von Weber from London to Dresden in 1844. The young Richard Strauss composed the Serenade for Thirteen Winds at the age of 17. The concert will conclude with the massive Grand Funeral and Triumphal Symphony, Op. 15 by Hector Berlioz. OCWS Principal Trombonist Gary Haendiges will be featured in the second movement of this work for band.


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.
