Inspired by the music and lyrics of Bob Dylan’s iconic song “Chimes of Freedom”, the FIUWE embarks of a musical journey honoring the plight of diverse people from adversity towards freedom. The final concert of this concert series will feature music honoring victims of the Holocaust. This moving concert will culminate in a moving performance of David Maslanka’s “Remember Me” for wind ensemble and cello solo, with guest cello soloist Artist- in- Residence Jason Calloway.
