The Ashland Area Community Concert Band (AACCB) will open the concert with Prelude on an Old English Hymn op. 67 by Robert Sheldon which is based on the famous hymn All Creatures of Our God and King; followed by Vincent Persichetti's Pageant, a commissioned piece for the American Bandmaster's Association. The Community Band will then be joined by guest clarinetist Dr. Thomas Reed to perform Ernesto Cavallini's Adagio and Tarantella Solo for Clarinet and Band. AACCB will close their portion of the concert with the Nathan Hale Trilogy by James Curnow which was inspired by three significant points in the life of this legendary American hero from the Revolutionary War.
After a brief intermission, the University Concert Band will perform a program beginning with the very popular and traditional march The Boys of the Old Brigade by American composer W. Paris Chambers, followed by David Holsinger's Nilesdance which is built on the expected ostinato and variations on a whimsical 13 1/2 beat melodic dance song. The band will then travel to Austria with Franz von Suppé’s Light Cavalry Overture from his operetta Light Cavalry. The concert will conclude with the simple charm of traditional Irish music with Jay Bocook's Kirkpatrick's Muse.
