On Thursday, January 20, 2011, the UPEI Wind Symphony was presented with Music PEI’s award for “Best Classical Recording of the Year” for its CD, Cathedrals

The CD, recorded throughout the 2009 – 2010 academic year, includes the title track, “Cathedrals” by Katheryn Salfelder, “Pictures at an Exhibition” by Modest Moussorgsky, “Bugs” by Roger Cichy, and “Scootin’ on Hardrock” by David Holsinger, among other works. 

Cathedrals is the Wind Symphony’s twelfth CD, the result of the annual recording project, initiated in 1998 as a means of archiving most of each year’s performance repertoire. The Wind Symphony is under the direction of UPEI music professor Karem J. Simon.
