The University of Mary Washington Concert Band will present its fall concert on Friday, Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. in George Washington Hall’s Dodd Auditorium.
The concert will include a performance of UMW’s new fight song “Soar, Eagle Nation Soar!” The piece, written last spring, already is a valuable addition to UMW’s spirit and community. The concert is free and open to the public.
The UMW Concert Band, conducted by Kevin Bartram, is comprised of both UMW students and community musicians who present two concerts a year. Membership is open to all UMW students regardless of major.
Also on the program are Gustav Holst’s “Second Suite in F, La belle Hélène” by Jacques Offenbach, “Salvation” by Robert W. Smith, and “Where Never Lark or Eagle Flew” by James Curnow. In addition, Bartram included a piece entitled “Wearing of the Green,” referencing the upcoming March tour of Ireland that will include several members of the band along with the Philharmonic Orchestra and the President’s Tour Club.
