This first concert of the Winds season includes a variety of band standards, show tunes, orchestra transcriptions and marches that demonstrate the excitement and richness of great wind band literature. The program begins with Franz von Suppe’s famous "Light Cavalry Overture". You will feel and hear the beat of the horse’s hooves in this classic overture from the 19th century. "Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral" will change the pace, as the band explores the rich beauty of Wagner’s piece from "Lohengrin". Otto Schwarz’s "Roller Coaster" will actually take you on an unforgettable wild ride (however, you should remain seated throughout). Norman Dello Joio’s beautiful "Scenes from the Louvre" earned him an Emmy Award, and will conclude the first half of the concert.
Jake notes that these concerts are suitable for all ages, so kids are welcome.
The concert starts at 2pm.
