SHERMAN, TEXAS—The Austin College Concert Band, directed by Bob Archer, will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 20 in Wynne Chapel on the Austin College campus. The presentation is free and open to the public.
The performance is titled “What Sparks the Imagination?” and features five American composters with different sparks, according to Archer. The evening’s program will include “Fanfare Mid-America” by David R. Holsinger; “Three London Miniatures for a Band” by Mark Camphouse; “With Quiet Courage” by Larry Daehn; “Blue and Green Music” by Samuel R. Hazo; and “Culloden” by Julie Giroux.
Now in its 10th season, the Concert Band is a joint effort of Austin College and community musicians. The band’s members include Austin College students—music majors and non-music majors, Austin College faculty, area high school band directors, and community members. The band is open to those who have an instrumental background and wish to continue or renew their love of music, Archer said. Interested performers may contact Archer by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Department of Music at 903.813.2251.
