The concert will begin with the Symphonic Band, conducted by Kirt Saville. They will be playing a few contemporary suites and hymns including “Hymn of Brotherhood” by Egbert Van Groningen. The band performs musical pieces from various periods.

The 85-member Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Eric Hansen, will be playing “Russian Sailor Dance” by Reinhold Gliere, “Serenade for Katherine in April” by Rob Nelson and “Huapango” by Pablo Moncayo. 

Next, Donald Peterson will conduct the Wind Symphony in five Yiddish dances written by Adam Gorb. This band has toured around the world and received national recognition in performances for the Music Educators National Conference and the American Bandmasters Association.

The Philharmonic Orchestra will conclude the concert. It is conducted by Kory Katseanes. The orchestra, comprised of 95 student artists, performs 10 to 14 times a year and tours the Western United States. It also collaborates in live performances with BYU’s opera, choral and ballet divisions.
