Join the Symphonic Band and conductor Tony Falcone for their program titled DoubleX. The concert celebrates women composers with works by Jennifer Higdon, Julie Giroux, Chen Yi and Kimberly Archer. Professor of Saxophone Paul Haar will also join the Band for the Nebraska Premiere Performance of Street Hawker, Concerto for Saxophone and Wind Sinfonietta, by UNL Alumna Rachel Lanik Whelan.
Directed by Anthony Falcone, the Symphonic Band has the distinction of being the band program’s top symphonic ensemble. Its select mission is to provide instrumentalists with an opportunity to demonstrate and develop the techniques and musical instincts appropriate to a symphonic setting. With an emphasis on the distinctive characteristics of the large wind and percussion ensemble, the Symphonic Band’s repertoire is culled from the rich resources of the wind band tradition.
