The KU Wind Ensemble, conducted by Dr. Paul Popiel, Director of Bands, will present the world premiere of a work commissioned for the ensemble, entitled In the Shadow of No Towers, by New York-based composer Mohammed Fairouz.
Initiated and generously sponsored by Reach Out Kansas, Inc., and Smithyman & Zakoura, Chartered, this event provides the KU Wind Ensemble the opportunity to premiere a work by a dynamic, young composer for a New York audience in the Stern Auditorium/ Perelman Stage of Carnegie Hall. Fairouz composed his work as an examination of living in the post 9/11 world. In the Shadow of No Towers, Fairouz’s first piece written for wind ensemble, is a symphony about the events of 9/11, the days and years that have followed, and how the aftermath has shaped people in today’s political climate. The composition is loosely based on panels created for a graphic novel entitled In the Shadow of No Towers by New York-based graphic novelist Art Spiegelman.
