The Utah Valley University Wind Symphony and University Band will come together in a “Fiesta!” concert to celebrate the end of the school year. The concert will take place March 25 in the Ragan Theater at 7:30 p.m.
“This concert includes some very exciting guest artists and features a very interesting and diverse program of works,” said UVU director of bands David Fullmer. This concert marks the culmination of his first year at the University as well as University Band’s first year of existence.
John Miller, director of bands at American Fork High School, will guest conduct the Wind Symphony at one point, stepping in to conduct Brant Kerrick’s “Bayou Breakdown.” UVU music education major Zachary Giddings was chosen by members of the University Band to guest conduct them, based on his performance rehearsing the band on multiple occasions throughout the school year.
The highlight of the evening will be the “Suite from Mass” by Leonard Bernstein, which will feature the UVU Faculty Brass Quintet.
The finale will be Clifton Williams’ “Fiesta!” which will effectively end the concert on a celebratory note with a rousing Latin theme.
Tickets are available at uvu.edu/arts or by calling 801-863-7529 (PLAY).
