University Band To Present Spring Concert

The University Band at Central Methodist University will perform their final concert of the semester Thursday, April 26, at 7:30 p.m. in Linn Memorial United Methodist Church on the CMU Fayette campus.

The concert is free and open to the public.

The University Band is comprised of students who want to play in a band but perhaps not at the intense level of the Concert Band. Some of the students are music majors who take the opportunity to perform with instruments other than their primary ones.

The conductors for this concert include Skip Vandelicht, associate professor of music and director of bands; Steve Litwiller, adjunct professor of music; and Dr. Dori Waggoner, associate professor of music, dean of the Swinney Conservatory of Music, and chair of the Division of Fine Arts.

The program will include “Emblem of Freedom March,” by Karl King, and arranged by CMU alumnus Andrew Glover ’83; “Sarabande and Polka” by Malcom Arnold, and arranged by John Paynter; “At Dawn They Slept (December 7, 1941)” by Jay Bocook;

“Air for Band” by Frank Erickson; “Songs from the Open Range” by John Cheetham; “Prometheus Overture” by Beethoven, arranged by Clifford Barnes; “Rock-a-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody,” arranged by James Ployhar; and “Electricity” by Daniel Bukvich.
