COCC’s Symphonic Band to cover marches, Gershwin

The Cascade Winds Symphonic Band, a group sponsored by Central Oregon Community College, will present the opening concert of its 2019-20 season at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 24, at the Summit High School auditorium. Admission is free.

The concert includes a work by composer Ryan Nowlin, two non-traditional (non-Sousa) marches – “Little English Girl March” by D. Delle Cese and Jerry Bilik’s “Block M Concert March” – and a composition titled “Tanczi” by noted Belgian composer Jan Van der Roost.

The final piece of the concert is a transcription, by Marco Tamanini, of George Gershwin’s timeless classic, “An American in Paris,” a composition meant to capture the sights and sounds of a visitor exploring the French city. “It’s a tour de force for the concert band and will certainly delight listeners of all ages,” said Michael Gesme, conductor of Cascade Winds.
