Pick-Staiger Concert Hall

Shawn Vondran, conductor

The Symphonic Band’s second winter-quarter concert takes a musical tour around the world, starting in Havana with George Gershwin’s Cuban Overture before traversing the globe to Australia for Percy Grainger’s Colonial Song and “Gumsucker’s March” from In a Nutshell. The second half of the program brings us to the US with Dwayne Milburn’s American Hymnsong Suite before a final stop in Argentina with Alberto Ginastera’s exhilarating “Danza Final” from his ballet Estancia.

Tickets are $6 for the general public and $4 for students with valid ID.
