KEITH TAYLOR, CONDUCTOR
Under the direction of Keith Taylor, the Concert Band presents an evening of works for symphonic winds during a special outdoor performance at the Ohrstrom-Bryant Theatre Tent. The Concert Band returns with a traditional piece of Americana: Frank Ticheli’s lovely setting of Simple Gifts and other songs from the Shaker tradition. Jennifer Jolley’s beautiful Ash represents her childlike fascination with ash from California wildfires. She depicts her understanding that something so magical and beautiful comes from something so powerful and destructive. The program includes two dance pieces: Frank Ticheli’s dramatic Vesuvius — a dance reflecting its Italian origins — and Giovanni Santos’ El Zape (the sap). Composed in the style of a Mexican huapango, El Zape is a fun, dance-like party full of festive expression.
