Metropolitan Wind Symphony Band Concert
The first Metropolitan Wind Symphony concert this season will open with Sousa on the Hoof. MWS Music director Lewis Buckley put this piece together years ago by mixing and matching different strains of Sousa's famous "horse marches," most characterized by the 6/8 time signature that approximates the sound of horses' hooves. One of the MWS members' choices for this season is Michael Daugherty's Red Cape Tango, his own transcription of the last movement of his Metropolis Symphony. Alleluia is Lewis Buckley's transcription of the famed Randall Thompson piece dedicated to the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood. The concert's title piece, At Kitty O'Shea's, by one of our favorite composers, Johan de Meij, is an Irish Folk Song Suite for wind orchestra. The second half of the concert includes the Opening Number of Sir Arthur Sullivan's famous ballet suite, Pineapple Poll, Mark Camphouse's dedication to the courage of Rosa Parks, A Movement for Rosa, and Julie Giroux' beautiful and exciting La Mezquita de Cordoba.
