Ketchikan High School graduate and high school math teacher, Terri Walker, will be featured on Leroy Anderson's "Trumpeter's Lullaby", and the trombone section will take over during "Seventy Six Trombones", from "the Music Man". A very interesting new composition titled "Rhythm Stand" is played mostly with pencils on various parts of the music stands and the band will perform three movements from the popular "Bugs Suite" that they presented several concerts ago. The musical portraits are the "Black Widow Spider", "Praying Mantis", and "Army Ants" (for which the percussion section built a special marching machine).
P.D.Q. Bach's "Grand Serenade for an Awful Lot of Winds and Percussion" is a very special piece composed by Johann Sebastian Bach's last and least respected son. P.D.Q. (1807-1742), has been described as history's "most justifiably neglected composer", and this work ranks with his "Pervertimento for Bagpipes, Bicycles and Balloons" as one of his finest efforts.
The concert will kick-off precisely
