FSU to Host Honor Band of High School Students
The Frostburg State University will host an Honor Band concert in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center on Sunday, March 3, at 3 p.m. It will feature outstanding musicians from high schools throughout Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
The band will play the intense “Canto” by Francis McBeth; “Hands Across the Sea,” a military march composed in 1899 by John Philip Sousa; and “Joy Revisited,” the companion piece of Frank Ticheli’s “Joy.” They will also play “Variations on a Korean Folk Song” by John Barnes Chance and “Black Is the Color of My True Love’s Hair,” arranged by James Curnow. Though first known in the Appalachian area, this folk song likely originated from Scotland.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and free for children ages 12 and younger. For more information, contact the FSU Music Department at 301-687-4109.
