LOGAN — Utah State University’s Department of Music presents the annual fall Symphonic Band and Chamber Ensembles concert Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the Kent Concert Hall of the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s Logan campus.

 

               
“This concert is one with great variety,” said Joseph Falvey, assistant professor of brass in the Caine College of the Arts. “The trombone choir, clarinet choir, horn quartet and the full Symphonic Band will all perform varied musical selections from a number of genres and periods.”

 

               
The program will feature diverse works for band, including an arrangement of “Amazing Grace” by Frank Ticheli. Also featured is a band arrangement of “March to the Scaffold,” the fourth movement of the “Symphonie Fantastique” composed by Hector Berlioz in 1830. This movement is the story of a man walking to the scaffold for his own execution and ends with him at the guillotine. Another work the band will perform is a band arrangement of “Japanese Rhapsody,” a piece composed by Clare Grundman.

 

               
This is Falvey’s first year at Utah State University. He is the new director of the Aggie Marching Band and also teaches the French horn. He earned his doctor of musical arts in horn performance from the University of Miami.

 

               
The Symphonic Band and Chamber Ensembles fall concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the CCA Box Office in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center, call 435-797-8022 or see the college’s Production Services website (arts.usu.edu).
