Wind Bands Winter Concert: ‘Afterimage’
John Astaire, Guest Percussion Soloist
In anticipation of Cal Poly Bands’ tour to the College Band Directors National Association conference in March, this concert will feature some classics as well as new voices in writing for the wind band.
Like a flash of light against our retina, life events can leave impressions. Music is way we can share those impressions with others. The program will explore this idea through works expressing joy and wonder.
Guest percussion soloist John Astaire will be featured on Mutsuhito Ogino’s “Concerto for Percussion and Wind Ensemble.
The program will also include Joni Greene’s “The Persistence of Memory,” John Mackey’s “Lightning Field” and Antonio G. Barata’s “Winds of Change.”
