The Limestone College Department of Music presents Wind Collision in concert on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in Carroll Recital Hall.
Comprised of Jonathan Kierspe on saxophone and Samuel Anderson on bass trombone, Wind Collision was formed in 2017. The duo initially met during their senior year of high school at the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, and they have since performed at a NASA Regional conference in Indiana, commissioned six works, and set up a multi-state tour where they will give masterclasses and perform their original works.
Limestone College’s indoor drumline, known as Saints Percussion, competed at the Winter Guard International Spartanburg Regional at Dorman High School on March 2 and performed its show “Behind Blue Eyes.”
The show featured music by The Who and was the first public performance of the program in its entirety. Saints Percussion finished in third place with a score of 72.65, an 11-point increase of a prior score from the ensemble’s charter season in 2014.
The Limestone College Athletic Bands will now be providing opportunities for students from Spartanburg Community College to join the Marching Saints.
