#SalemOR Concert Band – at Willamette U. – Sunday, May 22

SCB web MAY 16_2Sunday May 22 2016, at 3 PM
Hudson Hall @ Willamette University

Salem Concert Band concludes our 2016 season with an international program that will take you to Australia, Shanghai, Africa and Spain.

The Roar of Kimbo by Spanish composer Ferrer Ferran was inspired by the cultures and myths in the region surrounding Mount Kilimanjaro. Many of the residents in the area consider the mountain to be a living entity. This three-movement suite celebrates the magic, power and natural beauty of the region. The band will also perform Nelo El Sorlí, a Spanish march by Ferran.

Shanghai Sword Dance by Hardy Mertens was inspired by a poem by the same name by Penny Tan. Seonag Turner will join the band as our featured sword dancer. The poem describes the elemental powers of the sword.
