The Bethel College Concert Band, under the direction of Professor of Music Mike Kendall, will perform its free fall concert on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center.
The concert will open with a number of chamber works for brass choir, brass quintet, saxophone quintet and clarinet trio. Some of the exciting numbers on the program will include Johann Altenberg's “Concerto for Seven Trumpets” and “Timpani and Flashing Winds” by Jan Vander Roost. The concert will conclude with a multimedia presentation of Robert W. Smith’s four-movement symphony for band titled “The Divine Comedy.”
"Our fall Concert Band program will feature a wide variety of challenging music and will showcase our many talented Bethel students, in both chamber and concert band settings," says Kendall.
