The Sunderman Conservatory Wind Symphony honors the memories of the American Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg during the 150th Anniversary of this great conflict in our history with a concert of music from the Civil War period as well as more recent pieces composed commemorating the War Between the States.
Music on the program includes Cenotaph (fanfare) by Pennsylvania composer Jack Stamp, The Blue and the Gray by Clare Grundman, Ashokan Farewell (from the film “The Civil War”) by Jay Ungar, Shenandoah by Frank Ticheli, Gettysburg: The Third Day by Jay Dawson, and the world premiere of a new piece by Craig Thomas Naylor titled Unsung Heroes of the Civil War. Part III of this work was commissioned in part by the Sunderman Conservatory Wind Symphony, and they welcome Mr. Naylor as composer-in-residence for this premiere.
Join the Wind Symphony and conductor Russell McCutcheon as they remember music of the time and pay tribute to the soldiers and citizens who were forever marked by these events.
Admission Price: $5 for adults. Students, faculty and staff with College ID and children under 12 have free admission.
