The Lake Havasu Symphonic Winds concert band announces their third concert of the season to be performed at 3 PM on February 9, 2020 at the High School Performing Arts Center.
Valentine’s Day is approaching and romance is in the air, so Director Kimberly Lehmann has assembled a collection of musical pieces for the band that will express the beauty of love and romance. The performance is entitled “A Symphonic Tribute to Love”.
In keeping with the theme, the band will perform a variety of musical selections including a big-band medley called “Crooner’s Serenade”; another medley “A Gershwin Tribute to Love”; John Williams’ “Princess Leia’s Theme” from Star Wars; selections from “My Fair Lady”; “A Tribute to Billy Joel” and many more.
As a special feature, the band’s lead trumpeter Dante Marinelli will step into the spotlight to perform “Two Irish Folk Melodies”. These familiar pieces will be reminiscent of the typical Irish village wind bands of a by-gone era.
They were arranged in 1987 for concert band and solo trumpet by Donald Hunsberger for Wynton Marsalis’ album entitled “Carnaval” recorded with the Eastman Wind Ensemble.
This promises to be a very special, not-to-be-missed performance.
Admission is $10.00 for adults, children with and students are admitted free. Tickets are available at the box office prior to the concert or in advance (recommended) at Sound Bank Electronics, 1931 McCulloch Blvd. For more information call 928-680-6927 or visit the Band’s website at www.lhswinds.com
