Our program begins with “Symphonic Overture” by Barnes; serving as the “encore” is the march “Kiefer Special” by WH Kiefer; next on the program is Liszt’s “Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6″ (also known as No. 9) conducted by Bill Terry, National Concert Band’s Associate Conductor; as part of the Holiday Season we continue the program with “Rhapsody for Hanukkah” by Bulla, “Russian Christmas Music” by Alfred Reed, and the ever-popular “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson. Concluding the program is another favorite by Leroy Anderson – his “A Christmas Festival.”
As with every National Concert Band performance we conclude with a Service Medley recognizing all servicemen and women, past, present and future, and our “signature” song - “This Is My Country.”
Come join us on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 3 PM for our first performance at Luther Jackson Middle School. In 2014 we will be performing two more concerts at this new venue – on March 30 and May 11, both performances at 3 PM.
