Central Arizona Concert Band to perform at ERAU Sunday
The Central Arizona Concert Band will give its final performance of the season 3 p.m. Sunday in the Davis Learning Center on the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical Campus in Prescott.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $3 for those under 18 or with student IDs, and will be available at the door.
This concert will include a variety of works, some with special significance. "Cascading Trumpets," written by Arizona's own Al Davis, will feature Dean Holbrook, plus three of Holbrook's former music teachers, in the brass quartet.
The playbill will also include selections from "The Snow Queen," by Rimsky-Korsakof, and the "Festive Overture," by Dmitri Shostakovich. The band will also perform Ronald LoPresti's "Elegy for a Young American," written as a memorial to President John F. Kennedy in 1964, and Gustav Holtz's "First Suite in E-Flat for Military Band." There will also be the traditional Sousa marches.
Joe Cotten, publicity manager for the band, said the band will continue its summer time tradition of presenting free concerts on the courthouse plaza on the third Thursdays of June, July and August. The band will also perform at the Sharlot Hall Sesquicentennial celebration at 5:30 p.m. on May 30. Clydene Dechert is conductor of the band.
