O'Connell Sports Center, Clark College
Dr. Jacob Funk directs the Concert Choir and Richard Inouye leads the Concert Band in a performance of seasonal works. “I am really excited about the music we are performing at this concert,” says Director Dr. Funk. “Juxtaposed between old and new will be the classic arrangement of a French Carol, What is this Lovely Fragrance? by Healey Willan, with the more contemporary Earth Song by Frank Ticheli. Another highlight will be an exciting fusion of ancient Latin text and contemporary harmony, featuring a collaboration with Clark College percussion students, on the newly published Gaudete by Michael Engelhardt.” A highlight for the College Concert Band is the wind band classic, Scenes from the Louvre, by Norman Dello Joio. Dello Joio’s transcription for wind band was inspired by the 1964 television documentary produced by NBC News called A Golden Prison: The Louvre, for which Dello Joio provided the soundtrack. The band will also perform a contemporary instrumental orchestration of Leonard Bernstein’s, A Simple Song, from his epic musical theater work, Mass. Free Admission!
