Honor Band Festival Concert

Sunday, March 9, 2014 at 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Pealer Recital Hall, PAC 101 Braddock Road, Frostburg, MD, Frostburg

FSU to Host Honor Band Festival Featuring Region’s High School Students

The Frostburg State University Department of Music will present the Tri-State Honor Band Festival, the culmination of Honor Band Festival Weekend, on Sunday, March 9, at 3 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. The festival features high school musicians from around the tri-state area who will come together to put on this concert.

The program features several contemporary works for band, including “Fanfare and Flourishes” by James Curnow, based on Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s “Te Deum.” The program will also feature “Groove Music” by Brian Balmages; “Foundry” by John Mackey, which utilizes many non-traditional percussion instruments like salad bowls and pieces of wood; and “Endless Rainbows,” also by Brian Balmages, which centers around a simple melody that gently transforms to paint the picture of a rainbow brightening the skies. The Honor Band members will also perform “American Dream” by James Frankel.

Students from schools across the region – Somerset County in Pennsylvania, Mineral County in West Virginia and Maryland’s three westernmost counties plus Cecil, Baltimore and Wicomico counties – come to Frostburg to participate in Honor Band Festival Weekend.
