There and Back Again

The Seward Concert Band invites you to the opening concert for our 43rd season, “There and Back Again”. The concert is on Friday, October 18 at 7:30 PM at Sanford Middle School at 3524 42nd Avenue South in Minneapolis. Suggested donations are $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and $4 students and children.

Speaking of the program for this concert, Director Christopher Gough shares, ” There is something for everybody in this concert from the classic band literature of Sousa to the chaotic beauty of Ticheli’s ‘Symphony No. 2.’

I wanted the music for this concert concert to feel familiar while also stretching the imagination of the listener.

“I wanted the music for this concert concert to feel familiar while also stretching the imagination of the listener. The new pastoral setting of ‘As I Walked Through the Meadow’ by Pierre La Plante will remind you of Grainger folk tunes then you will feel like dancing through Auturo Marquez’s electric ‘Danzon No. 2.’ Selections from Vaughn Williams and Rimsky-Korsakov round out the performance and offer our concert goers traditional band masterworks to enjoy. “
