Our final rehearsal of the semester will feature a music reading session (some old, some new) and will conclude with course evaluations. Some of the titles selected for this rehearsal include:

Scenes from The Louvre (Norman Dello Joio), Waltz No. 2 from Jazz Suite No. 2 (Dimitri Shostakovich arr. de Meij), Espirit de Corps (Robert Jager), Marche Des Parachutistes Belges (Pierre Leemans arr. Wiley), Hurricane! (Paul Yoder), Lux Arumque (Eric Whitacre) and Symphonic Dance No. 3 (Clifton Wiliams).

We hope you all are having a stress-free end of the semester and look foward to seeing you on Monday.

Congratulations to members of the GMU Symphonic Band, your Fall concert was an outstanding success. I can not think of a better way to inaugurate this informational blog by presenting you with a slideshow of your performance. In the future, this site will be used to post announcements regarding rehearsals, performances and other events pertaining to the GMU Symphonic Band.
