Concert to Feature Combined Talents
Of Wind Symphony and Orchestra

Posted November 1, 2000

HOLLAND -- The Hope College Wind Symphony and Orchestra will combine their talents in a single performance on Friday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

The public is invited. Admission is free.

The Wind Symphony will be performing three pieces by American composers: "Commando March," by Samuel Barber; "Lincoln Portrait," by Aaron Copland; and "Tempered Steel," by Charles Rochester Young. Hope College President James Bultman will join the Wind Symphony onstage to narrate "Lincoln Portrait." The Wind Symphony will also perform a chamber piece by Rodrigo.

The Orchestra will perform the "Light Cavalry Overture," by Franz Von Suppe, which opens with a fanfare of brass, progresses to a middle section of intense string work, and concludes with the romping of horses and soldiers off to battle. The Orchestra will also perform Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake Ballet Suite," featuring the famous Pas de Deux.

Dimnent Memorial Chapel is located at 12th Street and College Avenue. Additional information may be obtained by calling the college's department of music at (616) 395- 7650.
