Symphonic Band Concert: History

    • The Symphonic Band, conducted by T. André Feagin, presents its third concert of the academic year with a program titled “History.” Using American history, patriotism, opera, an ancient Greek poem, and a tragedy by William Shakespeare as sources of musical inspiration, the program promises to awaken the senses while reflecting back through time. The ensemble performs the works of Dmitri Shostakovich, Frank Ticheli, John Mackey, John Phillip Sousa, and Alfred Reed. The program also features a musical tribute to Black History Month with a stirring performance of Omar Thomas’ Of Our New Day Begun.
