"The President's Own" US Marine Band
Doors Open: 7:15 PM
"The President's Own" US Marine Band in the SCFA Concert Hall.
As a part of the American Bandmasters Association 2017 convention, “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band will present a free concert that is open to the public. The concert will showcase a diverse program of classic band repertoire and exciting new works by living composers. Attendees will be treated to works by “The March King” John Philip Sousa; a transcription world première of Jacques Offenbach’s Overture to the Moon; a movement from the Marine Band’s most recent commission, Symphony No. 2, Voices, by James Stephenson; and John Mackey’s Frozen Cathedral, a portrait of Alaska’s majestic icy peak of Denali. In keeping with a programming tradition instilled by Sousa, the concert will also feature virtuoso soloists: the Marine Band’s baritone vocalist Master Sgt. Kevin Bennear will perform Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Songs of Travel and Ryan Anthony, principal trumpet of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, will perform Peter Meechan’s Songs of Hope, a piece dedicated to Anthony following his diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma.
