From the Conductor...
I would like to introduce potential new friends
to the Metropolitan Wind Symphony (MWS)
through this remarkable, live CD. If you have
been away from us for a while, please consider
this a reintroduction to a group that has never
stopped growing musically. And finally, to our
long- time friends and supporters, thank you
so very much.
The idea of a volunteer, community wind
band of sufficiently high calibre to release a
CD composed entirely of live presentations
would have seemed unlikely to me. And yet,
you hold Reflections in your hands. All of these
performances are unedited recordings from the
past three seasons' live concerts (2007 -2010).
The MWS members are wonderful, dedicated,
and talented musicians who deserve your
high recognition. I am proud beyond words
of the musical expressiveness and technical
accomplishment represented here.
Are these performances perfect? Of course
notthey're live! And the hall acoustics aren't
ideal. But are they exciting, beautiful, and highly
accomplished? Absolutely! Lovers of wind bands
will find much to relish here.
So if you are visiting the Boston area or live close
enough, I hope you'll join us at a live concert soon.
And please enjoy these fruits of our labors of love,
in celebration of 40 years of proud achievement!
