Click here to watch a live stream of the University of Maryland Wind Orchestra (UMWO) performing Steve Reich's Double Sextet at the College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA) Conference on Wednesday, March 20 at 7PM. 

Prior to CBDNA, members of UMWO peformed Reich's work twice at the Clarice Smith Center: first with eighth blackbird, a Grammy-winning contemporary music sextet who commissioned and premiered the piece; and second on UMWO's first spring concert, "The Poetry of Joseph Schwantner".  

The UMD Wind Orchestra is one of eleven bands chosen from a large pool of applicants to perform at the 2013 Conference. These select ensembles are regarded as among the most elite wind bands in the country.
