The UC Davis Concert Band and Campus Band will combine forces for a concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Mondavi Center’s Jackson Hall, offering zesty musical tributes celebrating the physical sciences and engineering.

The Concert Band, directed by Pete Nowlen, will play two pieces about famous bridges, including sections from Michael Daugherty’s multi-movement concerto “Brooklyn Bridge,” written in 2005 for symphonic band and clarinet soloist. This performance will feature clarinetist Deborah Pittman, a longtime faculty member at Sacramento State. Pittman will doubtless bring some personal perspective to the piece, since she was born in Brooklyn.

Also on the program will be mid-20th century American composer William Schuman’s “George Washington Bridge” (1950), early band master John Philip Sousa’s “Pathfinder of Panama” (1915), contemporary American composer John Fannin’s angular three-minute piece “The Hexagon” (2010), Frank Ticheli’s combustive “Nitro” (an “energy-charged three minute fanfare” from 2006), and a band setting of “Lux Aurumque” by Eric Whitacre (a piece that’s been heard several times during the past few years at the Mondavi Center in its original choral version).

The Campus Band, directed by Tom Slabaugh, will perform “Chaos Theory,” written in 2010 by composer J. Eric Schmidt, who teaches in the USC Film Scoring Program in Los Angeles, and “Cathedrals” by Katryn Salfelder, a piece written in 2007 that the composer describes as “a fantasy (based) on Gabrieli’s Canzon Primi Toni from the Sacrae Symphoniae, which dates
from 1597.”

The concert also will feature historic photos from the 1920s taken by the late Paul W. Hollingshead, the father of Bill Hollingshead, a Concert Band member and UCD graduate.

Tickets are $12 general, $8 students and children, available at the door or in advance at http://www.mondaviarts.org or (530) 754-2787.
