San Antonio College is pleased to welcome special guest composer Joel Love for a musical showcase featuring young and talented chamber music groups from around the city. Hailed as "extremely moving" by New Music Box and "especially sweet" by the Austin American Statesman, the music of Joel Love (b. 1982) explores an eclectic mix of genres, from short video pieces to works for chamber and large ensembles. This recital will feature new and exciting works and offer students an opportunity to interact with this critically acclaimed composer.
This concert is FREE, with an option to donate (at the concert) toward the Friends of Music at San Antonio College scholarship fund.

Celebrate the sound of everyone’s favorite horn! The Frost Wind Ensemble hosts top saxophonists PRISM Quartet, in the world premiere of Matt Browne’s Cabinet of Curiosities, and Dale Underwood, in Joel Love’s Lyric Concerto. The Frost Wind Ensemble opens with the exhilarating work of Carlos Simon, an innovative composer and rising star whose music straddles the worlds of jazz, gospel, classical, and neo-romanticism.
Faculty Artist Robert Young joins the Wind Ensemble for the North Carolina premiere of Joel Love’s “Solace: A Lyric Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Wind Ensemble,” a work the composer describes as being “inspired by selected meaningful texts that deeply engage with lyricism.” Also on the program is Percy Grainger’s timeless classic “Lincolnshire Posy,” a musical portrait of six folk songs that mimic the unique stylizing of the local musicians who “sang so sweetly to me.”
