End Date: 3/26/2017End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description:
The Lehman College and Community Band will give its first performance of the new year with Rites of Spring, a free concert featuring both classic and modern works for wind band. This event, which is open to the public, will take place on Sunday, March 26, at 2:00p.m. in the Lovinger Theatre.

Directed by Professor Alan Hollander, the ensemble will perform standards of the wind band repertoire including Mendelssohn’s sparkling Overture for Winds, Dello Joio’s Satiric Dances inspired by a comedic play by Aristophanes, and Variations on the Happy Farmer by Jager.

Highlighted will be clarinet soloist Boris Shpitalnik, performing the hauntingly sad but beautiful theme by John Williams from the motion picture Shindler’s List. Also featured will be vocalist Brian Baker, performing a medley from the Broadway musical Man of La Mancha.

Rounding out the program will be a Star Trek-inspired work by Hokoyama entitled Beyond, two dance-inspired works: a lively suite from the Renaissance era arranged by Curnow and “Wedding Dance” from the symphonic suite Hasseneh by Jacques Press, as well as memorial piece One Life Beautiful by Julie Giroux.
