February 28, 2009
Ketchikan, Alaska - Beethoven, P.D.Q. Bach, Jack Shay, Dave Kiffer
and Rob Holston are going to team up to present an in-depth analysis
of Ludwig's wonderful Symphony No. 5 in Saturday evening's community
band concert. Ketchikan Community Band's "Lightweight Concert"
will be held at Kayhi and scheduled to start at 7:04 pm.
Jack Green and Bill Green first presented this "play-by-play"
coverage thirty-two years ago with the Kayhi Band and have been
researching and developing new insights into the music ever since.
The concert will begin precisely at 7:04 pm. on Saturday, February
28th, opening with "Bravura" march. Other scheduled
selections include Aaron Copland's "Scenes from Billy the
Kid," and Percy Grainger's "Irish Tune from County
Derry" ("Danny Boy"). The trombone section will
be featured in "Holiday for Trombones" and the horn
section will be out front on "Officer of the Day" march.
Two John Williams medleys will be performed - the various marches
from "Star Wars" movies, and the scary tunes such as
the "Darth Vader Theme," "Jaws" and songs
from "Harry Potter" in "Chillers and Thrillers."
The band's percussionists will perform "Serengeti,"
an ensemble requiring fifteen players who will make use of many
of the custom instruments designed and built by the band members
including their gong, ships bells, rain machine and chimes.
There will be a number of special surprises and something of
interest to listeners of all ages.
Tickets are available from band members, the Arts Council,
McPherson Music and at the door. Those 18 and under are
7:04 - - - Don't Be Late!
