      Led by Michael Votta, Jr., the UMD Wind Orchestra (UMWO) kicks off its season with Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Joseph Schwantner’s The Awakening Hour, Herbert Haufrecht’s Symphony for Brass and Timpani, Michael Weinstein’s Serenade for 12 Instruments and Verne Reynolds’ Scenes Revisited.

      UMWO is a leading voice among collegiate ensembles in premiering new works for winds. This season’s engaging performances will feature faculty soloists and world-premieres of new works and masterworks of the 20th and 21st centuries. UMWO has performed in side-by-side collaborations with major professional ensembles and has performed by invitation at international, national and regional conferences.
