The Winds of the Mountain Empire, a 58-piece wind ensemble primarily comprised of music educators, will present its eighteenth annual summer concert in the auditorium of Union High School in Big Stone Gap, Virginia on Sunday, July 14 at 4:00 p.m.

The concert will feature compositions by Rossano Galante (Red Rock Mountain), Julie Giroux (Riften Wed), Sam Hazo (Go!), George Naff (Mountain Serenade), Daisuke Shimizu (Welcome to the Imagination World), Donald Sorah (Journeys), Jack Stamp (Star-Spangled Banner), and a commissioned work by Erich Stem (Unbridled Spirit).
The Winds of the Mountain Empire, founded by conductor Dr. Donald Sorah in 2006, is a professional wind ensemble primarily comprised of musicians from the southwest Virginia, northeast Tennessee, and southeast Kentucky regions that convenes each July for professional development and a culminating performance.
The concert will be presented free of charge, but donations to help sustain the longevity of the organization are gladly welcomed. For more information, email Winds of the Mountain Empire at windsme@comcast.net or search for Winds of the Mountain Empire on Facebook.
