Music to the ears: Concert announced

SPRINGVILLE — On Oct. 30 at 7 p.m., the Springville-Griffith Institute High School music department will present its annual winter concert, featuring the high school orchestra, chorus and concert band. The concert will be held in the high school’s Lyle G. Palmer auditorium. It is free and open to the public.

The concert band will kick off the evening, under the direction of Joseph Gervase. The band will begin with John Klohr’s “Billboard March,” followed by “Kentucky 1800,” by American band composer Claire Grundman. The band will close with “Spitfire,” a contemporary band composition by Gary Gilroy.

The concert will continue with the chorus, under the direction of Julie Noeson. The chorus will begin with “Under Pressure,” a choral arrangement of the song by rock band Queen. Next will be Boyd Bacon’s “Jabberwocky,” based on the work of Lewis Carrol. The chorus will close with a medley of music from the Broadway show “Once.”

The performance will conclude with the orchestra, under the direction of Scott Roudebush. The string section will begin with “Allegro,” from Mozart’s classical serenade, “A Little Night Music.” Next will be Giacomo Meyerbeer’s “Coronation March,” followed by Duke Ellington’s jazz standard “Caravan.” The orchestra will conclude with “Galileo’s Vision,” a contemporary piece by Ralph Ford.

The high school jazz bands and the “Tuesday Night” string ensemble will perform before the concert, starting at 6:30 p.m.
