Director of Bands Emeritus H. Robert Reynolds joins the Symphony Band for a “retro” concert just like the “good old days” when Sunday afternoon concerts were standard for the Symphony Band. Repertoire honors specific events in the history of the Symphony Band and concludes with David Maslanka’s Symphony No.4, based on the traditional Doxology tune, featuring Hill Auditorium’s famous Frieze organ. The Band also welcomes back alumnus Matthew Ernst, principal trumpet of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and winner of SMTD’s Paul Boylan Emerging Artist Award.

PROGRAM: Bright Sheng- Shanghai Overture; Bach/Cailliet- How fervent is my longing (my soul longeth to depart in peace); Leslie Bassett- Sounds, Shapes, and Symbols; Clarke- Bride of the Waves, Matthew Ernst, soloist; David Maslanka- Symphony No. 4
