Coming up this weekend is the concert band and wind ensemble concert!
It’s going to be quite a show, and I am really excited.
For one thing, we’re playing a bunch of fun music. We’re doing a Rent medley, and also the theme from Captain America.
We’re also doing this really challenging piece called Helm Toccata. It’s got this really interesting rhythm where it seems like you can’t keep track of the beat. It switches from 4/4 to 3/4 and back quite often so it’ll really keeps the audience moving.
And, there’s this really special piece being performed. It’s in two parts, and it was actually written by one of our seniors! Jenna Linville is looking to go to grad school for music composition, and this is one of her works. It’s called Chasing the Horizon and it’s really fantastic. If you come out for nothing else on Sunday, you should come out to support the student who wrote it.
It’ll be this Sunday at 3 p.m. in Rodman Playhouse.
There will also be a cookie reception to follow, sponsored by Kappa Kappa Psi, the marching band fraternity.
It’ll be a great Sunday, and an excellent showcase of some of the musical talent at Mount Union.
See you there!
