HCC presents Spring Band and Youth Choir Concert

On Friday, May 8, the Concert Band and Highland Youth Choir will perform their spring instrumental and vocal music concert beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Theatre in the Ferguson Fine Arts Center located on the Highland campus.

Directed by Scott Stich, the Highland Concert Band will play an eclectic array of music with "Lincoln" by John Williams, and arranged by Jay Bocook, which is from the sound track of "Lincoln," the motion picture.

Also being performed is "American Civil War Fantasy" by Jerry H. Bilik, which includes historic renditions of many songs of the Civil War period. This is in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War, and in remembrance of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

Also being played is "Smoke and Mirrors" by Robert Buckley, which is a swirling illusion of shadows and mystery, plus "Chorus Angelorum," by Samuel R. Hazo, which is in memory of a young man and his grandmother. The final piece to be played is "William Tell Overture" by Antonio Rossini, and arranged by Erik Leidzen.

Under the direction of Dagny Brandt, and accompanied by Clarie Cifone, The Highland Youth Choir will present "Rock and Roll Forever - How it All Began," a musical review by John Jacobsen and John Higgins. The choir will also perform favorite rock n' roll tunes, including "Blue Suede Shoes," "Tutti Frutti," and "Surfin' U.S.A."

The concert is free and open to the public.
