The San Antonio Wind Symphony will present its fifth concert of the season, on Sunday evening, April 23rd, in the James Madison High School Theater for the Performing Arts at 6:00 p.m.
In keeping with its educational outreach program, the Wind Symphony will will draw from works on the U.I.L. Prescribed Music List, many of which receive very little attention.
The works from the U.I.L. Prescribed Music List that we will be performing include Hector Berlioz's The Overture to Beatrice and Benedict, Frank Ticheli's aggressive and rhythmically active dance (representing the final days of the doomed city of Pompeii), Vesuvius, Norman Dello Joio's Satiric Dances (for A Comedy by Aristophanes), John Gibson's contemplative tone poem, Resting in the Peace of His Hands, Charles Ives' Variations on America, and Charles Griffes' masterpiece, The White Peacock.
Although not on the Prescribed Music List, We will be performing the John Philip Sousa march, Easter Monday on the White House Lawn and Vaclav Nelhybel's first work for band, Chorale.
The concert is open to the public free of charge, and we hope you will be able to attend.
Our next concert is Sunday, May 21st at 6:00 PM in the UTSA Recital Hall.
