Fall Concert Re-Cap

The Seward Concert Band came together for two great performances in October, performing for the community at Edinborough Park and at our formal season opener.

We kicked off our fortieth season by reliving some of our memories from the last decades.Our concerts opened with the piece Valdres by Johannes Hanssen, which happened to be the first piece performed at the Seward Band’s first concert back in 1977.

Another favorite is First Suite in E-Flat for Military Band by Gustav Holst. This was the first piece for military band that Holst wrote, and it is credited for convincing many other composers of the day that serious pieces could be composed for bands. Please enjoy:
