Symphonic Band

Pick-Staiger Concert Hall

Shawn Vondran, conductor; Schyler Adkins, doctoral assistant conductor

The Symphonic Band’s first concert of the winter brings together multiple art forms, beginning with a celebration of dance. Rob Smith’s jazz- and pop-influenced Dance Mix is followed by Philip Sparke’s Dance Movements. Originally written for the United States Air Force Band, the work takes its cues from Latin American music, rustic English dance tunes, ballet, and the music of Leonard Bernstein. Closing the concert is Paul Dooley’s Yellow Red Blue, inspired by the paintings of Gerhard Richter.
