The DSC Symphony Band is under the direction of longtime conductor Gary Caldwell, who is in his 33rd-year as director of bands at DSC. The symphony band will perform nine stirring compositions, beginning with the Robert Sheldon composition entitled “Rhapsodic Celebration,” which features three brief connected musical tableaus, “Intrada,” “Serenade,” and “Galop,” that present their own distinct mood and style. The Band will also perform “Festival” by James Clifton Williams, Jr., the Scottish Highlands-inspired “Walking Tune” by Percy Grainger, the Jim Colonna composition “Dancing Day,” and Rossano Galante’s “The Redwoods.”
The band will also perform the old English folk song “O Waly, Waly” by Jay Bocook, the John Mackey piece “Hymn to a Blue Hour,” the Noah Taylor composition “Condition Red,” and the ensemble will conclude the performance with the David R. Gillingham arrangement, “Council Oak,” which was inspired by the significance of a grand oak tree which chronicles the history of the Seminoles on the Seminole Hollywood Reservation in Florida.
General admission tickets for each concert will be available at the door for $5 for adults and $1 for DSC students and faculty and staff with current ID.
