“The CMU Wind Symphony is a consortium member of this piece, which accompanies a video that portrays the evolution of a huge machine made of glass,” accordingt o a news release from CMU.
“‘Seeds of Glass’ explores the intersection of nature and technology with a machine that starts as a seed, and slowly grows and expands, much like a living organism.”

The concert program will include “Kirkpatrick Fanfare” by Andrew Boysen, “Satiric Dances” by Norman Dello Joio, “Willow of Winter” by BJ Brooks and “Gandalf,” which is the first movement of John de Meij’s “Symphony No. 1” that was inspired by “The Lord of the Rings.”
