From the Maslanka Archive features media and stories of David’s life and work. Did you work with David? Please consider contributing material.
It’s time for another edition of From the Maslanka Archive. We are actively building the Archive, but it won’t be ready for public viewing for a while. In the meantime, we wanted to show off some great items we’ve already collected.
We also wanted to inspire YOU to help grow the collection. We would love to feature you in an upcoming edition! Simply provide us with photos, video, audio, or stories of your time together and you may find them on the front page.
This week, we are excited to feature pictures from a performance of David’s Mass with Gregg Hanson and the University of Arizona Wind Ensemble in Crowder Hall at the University of Arizona on April 19, 2015. This performance also featured soloists Vanessa Salaz (Soprano), Andrew Stuckey (Baritone), the Arizona Choir, and the Arizona Boys Chorus.
While Director of Bands at the University of Arizona, Gregg performed nearly every major piece of David’s and commissioned several. He is responsible for commissioning and giving the world premiere of the Mass in 1996.
Thanks to Mindi Acosta for taking these images and generously providing them to the David Maslanka Foundation.
