The Davis High School Concert Band, under the direction of Clyde Quick, and the DHS Symphonic Band, under the direction of Fredrick Lange, will present their annual adjudication concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 22, at the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High, 315 W. 14th St.
The unusual format of this special concert gives the audience an opportunity to watch and listen in as the bands perform for a visiting music expert, and then receive feedback and work with the guest conductor on stage.
This instruction benefits the students, but also helps the audience understand the process that contributes to producing an outstanding and memorable musical performance.
The adjudicator this year is Lester Lehr, professor emeritus at American River College and a former member of the Eastman Wind Ensemble with Frederick Fennell.
The Concert Band will perform “Chorale and Shaker Dance II,” “The Willows of Winter” and “Dreams and Fancies.” The Symphonic Band will perform a new symphony for band based on the great San Francisco earthquake of April 1906.
The public is invited to attend and no admission will be charged for this concert, although donations to help support the music program will be accepted with gratitude.
