Concert band takes center stage
Bluffton University’s Concert Band, under the direction of Dr. Roy Couch, will present the Winter Instrumental Concert at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 27, in Yoder Recital Hall. Masks must be worn inside buildings on campus.
Musical selections include:
A wind-band setting of hymns “A Scottish Sunrise (Morning Has Broken)” and “In Simple Faith (‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus);”
Compositions based on an extra-musical idea “The Ides of March,” “Radiance” and “Undertow” by John Mackey;
A piece by Clare Grundman, one of the significant band composers of the mid-20th century “Fantasy on American Sailing Songs.”
The performance is free and open to the public; a free-will offering will be taken for music scholarships.
