SFCM Wind Ensemble, Inaugural Concert Conducted by Brad Hogarth ‘12

I am super thrilled to return to my alma-mater San Francisco Conservatory of Music as the conductor of the newly formed wind ensemble! A project years in the making, thank you to all my mentors and colleagues at SFCM for supporting its creation. Through the magic of the Dante system, we had our first concert of chamber music safely recorded live in 8-12 different rooms at the same time, set to go online tomorrow night. Huge congrats to the musicians for their fantastic playing, and to the management and recording team for Olympic level logistics and tech management!!

Comprised of woodwinds, brass, and percussion instruments, the wind ensemble performs classics and new music alike. While wind ensembles are popular in the U.S., ranging from half-time marching shows to the prestigious military bands, this concert marks the first time in several years SFCM has incorporated this instrumentation into the curriculum.
