Otterbein University Wind Ensemble to Host Guest Artists, Radarhill

The Otterbein University Wind Ensemble will host post-jazz quintet Radarhill for a concert at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 22 in Fritsche Theatre at Cowan Hall, 30 S. Grove St. This event is free and open to the public.

The Wind Ensemble will perform works by Warren Benson and Aaron Copland, after which Radarhill will join them for Frank Zappa’s Envelopes and Radarhill’s piece for wind symphony, Lucidrome. The Otterbein Wind Ensemble is under the direction of Dr. Michael Yonchak.

Radarhill is a post-jazz quintet based out of Columbus. The group actively composes and performs new music with a wide variety of influences. The quintet aims to achieve a true synthesis of musical styles with a heavy emphasis on jazz and improvisation. The sources of inspiration for their music are intentionally wide-ranging — music for everybody. Four out of the five members of Radarhill met while earning varying levels of music degrees at Ohio University. The fifth member, Seth Daily, attended Capital University Conservatory of Music. While cutting their teeth in music school they studied and performed jazz, modernist avant-garde, contemporary classical, symphonic music, free improvisation and other styles. All of these sounds are present in their music. The group first formed as a trio in the summer of 2014 but quickly evolved into a quintet. Radarhill maintains an active performance and rehearsal schedule throughout the year. They have been artists-in-residence at Wild Goose Creative; have composed and performed works for Radarhill/Wind Symphony (a new composition coming this spring); have three full length records released; and are featured at many venues throughout Columbus, and the Midwest. In June 2016, the quintet released a double-album, “Something’s/Any Given Day,” featuring an album of works by members of the band (“Something’s”) and a six-movement suite (“Any Given Day”) written by Columbus-based composer/trombonist Nick Weckman (featuring vocals and narration). A live recording of their first Wind Symphony piece, Lucidrome, was also just released. Find them online at https://radarhill.bandcamp.com/Radarhill is: Caleb Miller, keyboards; Seth Daily, percussion; Eli Chambers, bass; Nick Simko, trumpet; and Jordan Reed, saxophones.
