Bands joining for concert Nov. 29

November 26, 2012

The Chadron State College Community Symphonic Band will join the CSC Wind Symphony for a concert Thursday, Nov. 29, at 7:30 p.m. in the Memorial Hall auditorium.

The community band, under the direction of Dr. Sidney Shuler and his wife, Pamela, will open the concert with a selection of works centering on America. From American sailing songs to Cajun folk songs, Sidney Shuler said the program is designed to challenge the ensemble and have the audience humming along.

The 43-member Wind Symphony will play wind ensemble standards including Julis Fucik’s “Florentiner March,” Gustav Holst’s “Second Suite in F for Military Band” and transcriptions from the choral and jazz libraries.

The concert, which is open to the public free of charge, will close with the two ensembles combining for what the Shulers are calling a “secret” piece.
