New Season Begins - October 11, 2015
September 25th, 2015
The Mesilla Valley Concert Band’s first performance of the new season features another exciting program. The march selections include a little known but popular Sousa composition titled The Wolverine March, dedicated to the governor of Michigan and his staff, and The U.S. Field Artillery March, the official U.S. Army march. Also on the program is a band arrangement of Verdi’s incomparable La Forza del Destino (The Force of Destiny) Overture, and Tchaikovsky’s very dramatic Finale from Symphony in F. Minor No. 4. On the lighter side, the band will perform a medley from the Wizard of Oz, and a reprise of the beloved 76 Trombones from The Music Man, transcribed by trombonist Tom Wildman to especially feature the band’s strong trombone section. The free concert is at 3pm on Sunday, October 11, 2015, in the Atkinson Recital Hall in the Music Center at NMSU.
