Clark College Concert Band presents Fall Concert
November 6, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmfree
The Clark College Concert Band, under the direction of Dr. Doug Harris, presents its fall concert, “Fanfare and Dances,” on Friday, Dec. 6, at 7:30 p.m. at the VSAA Royal Durst Theatre. The first half of the concert will be comprised of chamber ensembles from within the band. Performing groups will be the Brass Choir, Woodwind Choir and Percussion Ensemble.
The second half will predominately feature American composers. The opening work is “Fanfare for Band and Antiphonal Brass,” by Fisher Tull, to be followed by Percy Grainger’s “Mock Morris,” “Sheltering Sky,” by John Mackie and a relatively new work by composer Michael Gandolfi, “Vientos Y Tangos” (Winds and Tangos). This work explores the extremely evocative Argentine tango, with a 21st-century twist. The concert will conclude with standard of the wind band repertoire, John Zdechlik’s “Chorale and Shaker Dance.”
