Southern Miss Symphonic Winds and Concert Bands perform next week

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The following is a news release from The University of Southern Mississippi:

The Hattiesburg community will be treated to a pair of concerts next week by two University of Southern Mississippi bands. Both events will take place at Bennett Auditorium on the Hattiesburg campus.

On Monday, Nov. 17, the Symphonic Winds will perform their second concert of the Fall 2014 season at 8 p.m. under the direction of Dr. Mohamad Shumann. On Thursday, Nov. 20, the Southern Miss Concert Band presents its concert at 7:30 p.m. under the direction of Dr. Jamie Standland.

These high-energy concerts appeal to almost all musical palettes. The Symphonic Winds program includes “Cartoon” by Paul Hart, “Three American Hymns” by retired composer-in-residence Luigi Zaninelli, “Teddy Trombone” by Henry Filmore, conducted by Graduate Assistant Doug Morin, as well as the exciting finale to “Symphony No. 3” by James Barnes.

“I am looking forward to a wonderful concert. I have a great group of students who have really worked hard to work together to put on a great show,” says Schumann.

This Concert Band program includes pieces such as “Pas Redouble” by Saint-Saens, “Shepherd's Hey” by Grainger, “Sea Songs” by Vaughan Williams, “Perthshire Majesty” by Sam Hazo, and a premiere of Zanielli's “Spirit and Hope.” As well as a premiere piece, this concert will also host guest conductor James Finley, conducting “Perthshire Majesty.”

“The students in the Concert Band have worked extremely hard in preparation for this concert. I am very confident that this musical presentation will be enjoyed by all who attend,” said Standland.

Both of these concerts precede a weekend of master classes and a concert by the Wind Ensemble featuring internationally acclaimed trombonist, Joseph Alessi.

This eclectic program is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 601.266.4990.
