Diablo Wind Symphony Features San Francisco Associate Principal Trombone, Nick Platoff
The Diablo Wind Symphony will present its fourth and final concert of the 2021/2022 season on Sunday, May 22, 7:30 pm, at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek. Featured artists will include Nick Platoff, associate principal Trombone of the San Francisco Symphony, and a trio of alumni trumpet players from The Blue Devils.
The DWS selections feature an array of special pieces including Gavorkna Fanfare by Jack Stamp, Nimrod by Elgar's "Enigma Variations," and the world premiere of Mad Hatter by our very own John Meehan. A trio of trumpet alumni from The Blue Devils will be featured in Bugler's Holiday by Leroy Anderson, and our guest artist, Nick Platoff, will join the ensemble on Concertino for Trombone by Ferdinand David. We are also excited to perform another world premiere of an original piece by Platoff titled Encore No. 1 in 7. Other selections on the program include Finale from the 4th Symphony by Tchaikovsky, Metroplex (Sheldon), and In Storm and Sunshine March by J.C. Heed.
The 45-member DWS is made up of outstanding high school and college musicians in the area who present four concerts each season alongside prominent featured guest artists.
