Written by WKTN Staff on February 5, 2019
BLUFFTON, Ohio—Bluffton University will host an instrumental concert featuring its Concert Band at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24, in Yoder Recital Hall.
Under the direction of Dr. Roy Couch, assistant professor of music, the concert band will perform recent works that showcase different approaches to wind band composing.
Bluffton’s Concert Band will perform “Sheltering Sky” by John Mackey, a piece that exploits the tone color possibilities of the Concert Band; “Fivefold” by Michael Oare, a piece almost completely built around the number five; and “The Exultant Heart” by Jess Langston Turner, a piece that is about the joy of true love and incorporates two famous classical themes.
The concert also includes “Falling Water” by Timothy Broege and conducted by senior music major Eddie Martin, “Vertigo” by Chris Bernotas, “Fortitude” by Sean O’Loughlin, “With Wind and Water” by Brant Karrick and an arrangement of Irish Street Ballads entitled “A Longford Legend.”
This event is free and open to the public.
