The Concert Band presents an evening of works for symphonic winds exploring the beauty of life and nature. Part of Shenandoah University’s Women’s History Month Celebration, the program includes Julie Giroux’s One Life Beautiful. An American composer who has become a true force in a male dominated field, Giroux was the first female composer to have her music performed during a U.S. Presidential Inauguration Ceremony, was the first woman (and youngest) to win an Emmy Award in the field of “Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music Direction” and was the first female composer inducted into the American Bandmasters Association. Other performance highlights include David Maslanka’s Mother Earth, Dana Wilson’s Shortcut Home and Oscar Navarro’s El Arca de Noé.
