On Wednesday, October 13, UGA’s Symphonic Band begins its season in Hodgson Concert Hall.
Graduate conductor David Stanley opens the evening with Carnegie Anthem by William Owens, which pays tribute to the storied NYC concert venue and celebrates a return to live performances this year. Frank Ticheli’s infamous setting of Shenandoah, along with Kenneth Hesketh’s rousing Masque conclude the first half. After intermission, graduate conductor Jeremy Smith leads the ensemble in Resplendent Light (On Walden Pond) by composer Tyler S. Grant. Yasuhide Ito’s expansive Glorioso rounds out the program.
The UGA Symphonic Band, under the direction of Dr. Michael C. Robinson, is the largest of three wind bands in the Hodgson School of Music. In addition to music majors and minors, membership is comprised of a significant number of other disciplines from across the University.
