Two cherished celebrations come together in this program! The 55th season of the Calgary Concert Band will be marked with the first performance by the CCB of the landmark Symphony No. 6, Op. 69 (1956) of Vincent Persichetti, one of the greatest works of all time for wind band.
Remember Expo’86? We reprise the excitement and energy of that special time with High Spirits of Canadian composer Louis Applebaum, premiered in Vancouver in 1986. This rare and unforgettable concert will also showcase the powerful and emotional playing of artist Charles Foreman in a performance of the Concertino for Piano and Wind Ensemble by Pulitzer Prize winning composer Karel Husa.
