The Mesilla Valley Concert Band will give a free concert on Sunday, March 4, 2018, at 3 p.m. in the Atkinson Recital Hall in the Music Center at NMSU. Highlighting the concert will be an original composition by our very own J. David Beasley, Concerto for Horn and Sorceress, featuring his wife, Kimberly Beasley, on the French horn. A native Las Crucen, Beasley is a partner in Beasley, Mitchell & Co. David and Kim met while serving in the U.S. Air Force Heartland of America Band. Also on the program are three guest conductors: Kathy Hill will conduct Eric Whitacre’s October; Bob Cutler, playing the part of Edwin Franko Goldman, will conduct two marches by Goldman as tribute to his centenary this year; and Jim Young will conduct Rossini’s William Tell Overture. Seating is first come, first served. The band looks forward to you joining us for this varied and entertaining musical presentation in our 30th season.
