Friday, October 29, 2010
CANTON, Mo. – On Saturday, Nov. 13 at 3 p.m., the Culver-Stockton College Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band, under the direction of Trent A. Hollinger, director of bands and assistant professor of music, will bring you an afternoon of music inspired by nationalism. The concert will be held in the Alexander Campbell Auditorium located in the Robert W. Brown Performing Arts Center on the C-SC campus.
The Wind Ensemble will be joined by faculty artist, Tom Polett, professor of music, in a performance of Launy Gröndahl’s “Trombone Concerto.” In addition to this Danish composition, the Wind Ensemble will perform nationalistic works from Russia with Dmitri Shostakovich’s celebratory “Festive Overture,” Australia with Percy Grainger’s beautiful “Colonial Song,” and America with Charles Ives’s quirky and virtuosic “Variations on America.”
The Symphonic Band will perform the famous, nationalistic standard “Finlandia” by Jean Sibelius; exhilarating and mellifluous excerpts from Richard Wagner’s “Lohengrin”; an American march, “The Thunderer,” by John Philip Sousa; and will close the concert with the Latin American dance rhythms of Clifton Williams’ “Symphonic Dance No. 3, Fiesta.”
Come and join the Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band as they
celebrate revolution and freedom, yearn for the beauties of home and dance to Latin American celebrations. This event is free and open to the public. For more information about this event contact the C-SC Fine Arts Division at firstname.lastname@example.org or (573) 288-6413.
