BYU Instrumental Showcase to feature top ensembles in concert Oct. 1

Brigham Young University bands, symphonies and orchestras will present the annual Instrumental Ensemble showcase Wednesday, Oct. 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

All seats are $6, and tickets can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, by calling (801) 422-4322 or by visiting byuarts.com.

The showcase, featuring the Symphonic Band, Symphony Orchestra, Wind Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestra, is the only event during the year when all four instrumental ensembles perform together.

The Symphonic Band, conducted by Kirt Saville, will perform a traditional American march, “His Honor March,” by Henry Fillmore; “Perthsire Majesty,” a Scottish ballad by Samuel Hazo; and the Divertimento for Winds and Percussion, a contemporary work featuring upbeat fanfares and a spirited final movement by Roger Cichy.

Conducted by Eric Hansen, the Symphony Orchestra will perform three pieces including the Overture to Franz von Suppé’s late 19th-century opera, “The Beautiful Galathea,” as well as a French impressionistic piece, “Pavane,” by Maurice Ravel.

The Wind Symphony, conducted by Donald Peterson, will perform “Masque” by Kenneth Hesketh; an Irish tune from “Country Derry,” commonly known as “Danny Boy;” and “Shepherd’s Hey” by Percy A. Grainger. Their performance will conclude with a march from “Symphonic Metamorphosis” by Paul Hindemith.

Conductor Kory Katseanes and the BYU Philharmonic Orchestra will complete the evening with a tribute to the Olympics. They will perform the Overture to Act Three of “Lohengrin” by Richard Wagner, used in the first modern Olympics; “Javelin” by Michael Torke, written for the 1994 Olympics in Atlanta; and “The Olympic Fanfare and Theme” written by John Williams for the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.

For more information, contact Donald Peterson at (801) 422-7275 or Eric Hansen at (801) 422-4135.
