“Allegory” follows, with “Nexus” next featuring trumpet soloist, Jeff Karlson. Next is “Serenity”, which is based on a work for choir and violin/cello, called “O Magnum Mysterium”. One of Aaron Copland’s most celebrated works, “Appalachian Spring” is a ballet score transcribed for band.

“If Ever I Would Leave You” and “March from Camelot”, two songs from the medley from “Camelot”, will be recognized from the musical of the same name.

William Walton has composed the “Crown Imperial March” commissioned for the coronation of King George VI in 1937 – thematic material returns several times before a dramatic finish.

“Earthdance” will celebrate the natural rhythms and energy of the Earth.

Stephen Sondheim’s “No One is Alone” from the movie “Into the Woods”, “Travelin’ Music” based on the “Arkansas Traveler” folk song, “Mancini”, featuring “Baby Elephant Walk”, “The Pink Panther”, “Dreamsville” and “Peter Gunn”, and “Kirkpatrick’s Muse” will wind up this season’s Winter Concert.

Tickets are available at McPherson Music and at the door.
