37th Concert Season 

Saturday, November 12th, 2022, 7:30 p.m. 


Music selected for this program represents some of the most well-known pieces by each composer. In most cases, these pieces were their first widely performed compositions and acted as a pivotal turning point in their careers. The final work by Grainger is an exception to this theme given he was already well-known by the time it was commissioned. However, Lincolnshire Posy remains one of his most popular masterworks in the wind band canon.

  • Gavorkna Fanfare by Jack Stamp
  • Dusk by Stephen Bryant, Riley Ohler – Student Conductor
  • Blue Shades by Frank Ticheli
  • Fanfare from “Soundings” by  Cindy McTee
  • Lincolnshire Posy by Percy Grainger

  • Stomp by David Biedenbender
  • The Big Cage by Karl King

For a Future to be Possible…

The collection of works in this concert are connected by the notion that a better future is only possible if individuals are conscious of themselves and mindful of others. Compositions by Williams and Maslanka were inspired by inward reflection of this idea, Thomas’ work celebrates a trailblazer and advocate for acceptance and unity, and Mackey’s work is a meditation on grief. Yet each piece is also united by the simple truth that music allows us to be collectively present, alive, and sensitive. Music can speak when words cannot. 

  • A Mother of a Revolution! by Omar Thomas
  • Some treasures are heavy with human tears by John Mackey
  • Caccia and Chorale by Clifton Williams
  • TBA piece to feature Amanda Sage – Flute Soloist
  • Give us this Day by David Maslanka
