The Evangel University Symphonic Band is hosting a free concert on Tuesday night, 7:30 p.m., in the Barnett Recital Hall on the Evangel campus.
The concert is free and open to the public. The band of 31 students is made up of students from all study areas, not just those majoring in music. Director Matthew Moore said that this fact, along with a change in music choices, brings a lot of energy to the band’s performances.
“I made the decision to go back to more traditional symphonic band repertoire this semester,” said Moore, director of bands and a 2001 graduate of Evangel. “The students love the music and it shows. It should be a great concert!”
The concert will feature these selections:
- National Emblem March, by Edwin E. Bagley
- American Overture, by Joseph Willcox Jenkins
- Lux Aurumque, by Eric Whitacre
- 2nd Suite in F, by Gustav Holst
- Noisy Wheels of Joy, by Eric Whitacre
- Abram’s Pursuit, by David Holsinger
The assistant director of bands, Darren Eddington, will conduct “Abram’s Pursuit”, while senior music education major Kalise Garner will conduct “Noisy Wheels of Joy.”
The Barnett Recital Hall is just south of the Robert H. Spence Chapel, facing Glenstone Ave.
