Notes & Reviews:

The Mansfield University Concert Wind Ensemble is a select group of approximately 48 woodwind, brass, and percussion players who perform the most outstanding wind-band literature under the direction of Director of Bands, Dr. Adam F. Brennan. One of the oldest wind ensemble's in the country, the MU Concert Wind Ensemble performs four to five times a year.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Mansfield University of Pennsylvania is a small school of about 3000 students. Its music department numbers around 250. In this album by its wind ensemble, Frank Ticheli's little 'Nitro' is the high-energy opener. Of the four varied, interesting movements in Jan van der Roost's Manhattan Pictures, I especially enjoy the mysterious III ('Mesto'). The last piece, Alfred Reed's effervescent Punchinello, is given a spirited reading. The MU wind ensemble plays with great enthusiasm and has some skilled players.
