Courtney Snyder, conductor
The Concert Band performs pieces that express the range of human emotions from grief over losing a loved one to the joy of a wedding celebration. The concert opens with a festive Peruvian fanfare followed by two pieces performed in memory of the late composer Steven Stucky, including the U-M premiere of Xi Wang’s new composition. Wilson’s Footsteps comprises a modern-day Bolero structure representing the meandering in life from gently walking to mysterious uncertainty to massive marching. U-M faculty clarinetist Chad Burrow joins the Concert Band to perform Navarro’s 2nd Clarinet Concerto, and the concert closes with the music of a joyous wedding celebration.
PROGRAM: Gervasoni- Peruvian Fanfare no 1; Stucky- Threnos; Xi Wang- Winter Blossom; Wilson- Footsteps; Navarro- 2nd Clarinet Concerto; Press- “Wedding Dance” from Hasseneh
