Conductor Dario Sotelo works with UMD Wind Ensemble at UMD and in Brazil

Dario Sotelo

The UMD Symphonic Wind Ensemble and the Percussion Ensemble are taking their talents abroad in the Spring of 2005. The conductor of the Brazilian National Wind Orchestra, Dario Sotelo, has invited director Mark Whitlock and the UMD Symphonic Wind Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble to perform and study at the Conservatory of Music in Tatui, Brazil.

Sotelo will also come to UMD to present clinics and to conduct the Symphonic Wind Ensemble Concert at 7:30 p.m. on February 27, 2005 in the Weber Music Hall. This opportunity will be rewarding for students as it will allow them to share their talent, as well as experience the music and culture of Brazil. The public is invited to hear Maestro Dario Sotelo as he conducts Band Dancings!, original wind ensemble works based on traditional South American dances.

The cost is $10 per person and the proceeds from the event help support the UMD Bands tour expenses for trip to Brazil. Mark Whitlock and Daniel W. Eaton will direct the concert. For information contact Mark Whitlock, 218-726-6124,
