CONCERT FINALE FOR SYMPHONIC BAND AT UTAH STATE UNIVERSITY
 

LOGAN, UT – The Utah State University Music Department presents the annual “Holiday Closer” with the Symphonic Band Nov. 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Kent Concert Hall.

           

“This will be a well-rounded, satisfying concert for all involved,” said Gregory Wheeler, assistant professor in the Caine College of the Arts and director of the Symphonic Band. “This performance will consist of traditional folk songs, warm ballads, an upbeat march and music of the holiday season.”

           

The concert will feature well-known music, including “76 Trombones” by Meredith Wilson and “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” by Edward Pola and George Wyle. “Air for Winds” by Melvin Shelton, “Cajun Folk Songs” by Frank Ticheli and other works will also be presented.

           

Every year the concert features a guest from the North Pole to conduct the original arrangement of “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson.

           

Preceding the Symphonic Band is the USU Brass Ensemble  performing the first movement from the “Holst First Suite” by Gustav Holst. The USU Brass Ensemble is under the direction of Sarah Ruby Keene, a student majoring in music education.

           

USU’s Symphonic Band includes 85 students and is not limited to music majors. The students prepare for this concert with only eight rehearsals, as participants are also involved in the Marching Band.

           

“The holidays are a great time to attend a band concert and feel the spirit of the season,” said Wheeler.

           

“Holiday Closer” is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the Caine College of the Arts website (arts.usu.edu.).
