The Sterling College Symphonic Band will hold its first concert of the year on Thursday, November 1, at 7 p.m. The concert will be held at the Sterling United Presbyterian Church. The public is invited to attend.

The concert will feature a variety of music, including J.J. Richards march “Emblem of Unity;” “Rhythm of the Winds,” an American standard by composer Frank Erickson; “Rites of Tamburo,” an original work by composer Robert W. Smith that opens with solo french horn and quickly builds in energy and excitement; a shimmering and beautiful arrangement of the American folk song, “Shenandoah”, by Frank Ticheli; and a dramatic and powerful arrangement of the American spiritual, “Were You There When They Crucified My Lord” arranged by David Holsinger.

“We are excited to open up our concert season at Sterling College with the Symphonic Band. This group of students have been working hard on a varied repertoire of music and we are sure that every audience member will find a piece or two that they really enjoy. The concert will be fairly short due to limited amount of rehearsal time, but we've packed it full of quality programming,” said Larry Brownlee, pro-rata assistant professor of instrumental music.
