Welcome to our 35th Anniversary Season!
Sunday, November 10, 3:00 PM
Church of the Redeemer, Bryn Mawr
In this first concert of our 35th anniversary season, Nathan Snyder, conductor, will lead us off with the thrill ride American Overture for Band by Joseph Wilcox Jenkins, followed by Paul Hindemith’s Symphony in B Flat. The first half will close with a moving tribute to Mary Ann Torrence, Tom McPhillips and Bob Geasey, three band members who passed away in 2013. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, we will open the second half with Bernstein’s Fanfare for the Inauguration of John F Kennedy and Ronald Lo Presti’s Elegy for a Young American, written in memory of Kennedy. Sam Getchell, assistant conductor, will lead the playing of Rocky Point Holiday by Ron Nelson, and we’ll close the program with a salute to Sousa playing the third movement of Ira Hearshen’s Symphony on Themes of John Philip Sousa and Sousa’s own Fairest of the Fair on which it is based.
