The Symphonic Band will begin the concert with Walter Cummings’ High Country Fanfare, followed by David Shaffer’s Dominion of the Sky; John O’Reilly’s Castlebridge; and El Pueblo, a paso doble by Johan Nijs.

“The Wind Symphony will begin the second half playing Roland Barrett’s exciting They Stood at the Edge of the Sky — his tribute to the ‘brave men and women who faced incredible and overwhelming hardships as they explored and settled the West,'” says Dr. Robert J. Cesario, director of bands and orchestras.

“The next piece will be Toshio Mashima’s symphonic poem, giving his impressions of Kyoto, the city which was for 1,000 years the capital of Japan, Le Danse du Phénix,” continues Cesario. John Mackey’s Hymn to a Blue Hour will follow.

The concert will conclude with a performance of Gustav Holst’s First Suite in E-flat.
