Mason Wind Symphony Concert #2: "Enigma"

Center for the Arts, Concert Hall, Fairfax Campus


The Mason Wind Symphony concludes the Fall 2023 portion of the 2023-23 season with Edward Elgar’s beautiful yet mysterious composition, Enigma Variations, transcribed for wind band. In this work, Elgar included a theme that he referred to as the “enigma” theme, which he never revealed its title. He offered several clues and hints over the years; however, despite numerous attempts, the mystery melody remains unsolved. The Mason Wind Symphony will complement this work with a premiere of Hilary Purrington’s latest composition, and Florence Price’s Adoration, transcribed for wind band by Sheldon Williams.

$12 General Public, $8 Seniors, $5 Students
