DCWE delights with a rendition of the classic staple of the wind band repertoire by the famed English composer. The fall concert also marks the beginning of the ensemble's celebration of the 2020 Composition Competition works with the world premiere of the Second Place Winner The Dove in the Ash Grove by Keane Southard, taking us from Hanover to the British Isles. Other stops in the evening's program include Japan with Yukiko Nishimura's Sparkleberry; and Texas, Istanbul, Spain and Argentina with Roma by Valerie Coleman.

Generously supported by the Deborah E. and Arthur E. Allen, Jr. 1932 Fund, the Richard F. Mattern 1970 Fund and Friends of the Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble

About Keane Southard
Described as "a hugely prolific musician with a wide variety of skill sets" (newmusicbuff.com), Keane Southard (b. 1987) is a composer and pianist who believes deeply in the power of music to change how people think, feel and act, and that it can be a catalyst for positive change in the world. His works reflect his many diverse musical tastes, from medieval chant to 70s rock, Bach to the Blues, and 19th-century romanticism to Latin dance forms. Keane has been a recipient of many awards including the Yale Glee Club's Emerging Composers Competition, the Capital Hearings Young Composers Competition, the Cecil Effinger Composition Award and George Lynn Prize from The University of Colorado-Boulder, First Prize in the Longfellow Chorus International Composers Cantata Competition, the Charles B. Olson Young Composer Award and the Ars Nova Singers Colorado Composers Competition. Keane earned his BM from the Conservatory at Baldwin Wallace University in composition and theory, his MM from the University of Colorado-Boulder, and is currently pursuing his PhD in composition at the Eastman School of Music. He has also taught at Bennington College in Vermont.
