UCD bands to perform music from England, Japanese anime classic

From page A9 | May 23, 2014 |

The UC Davis Concert Band and Campus Band will present their spring quarter concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 4, in the Mondavi Center’s Jackson Hall.

“The Concert Band will do an English-themed program; Grainger’s Lincolnshire Posy is the focal work,” said Pete Nowlen, leader of the UCD Concert Band.”The program opens with an American’s musical impression of London, Mark Camphouse’s ‘Three London Miniatures,’ and closes with a piece commissioned from an English composer for an American military band, Philip Sparke’s ‘Invictus.’

“Between are two settings of English folk songs; the aforementioned Lincolnshire Posy, and Hugh M. Stuart’s ‘Three Ayres from Gloucester.’ “

Olin Hannum, who leads the UCD Campus Band, said, “The Campus Band portion of the program is centered around the wonder of our natural world, and the methods in which we attempt to process and make sense of our surroundings.

“We will play ‘Mother Earth’ by David Maslanka, ‘O’ Magnum Mysterium’ by Morten Lauridsen (originally a choral work, arranged for band H. Robert Reynolds), and music from the popular anime film ‘Princess Mononoke’  by Joseph Hisaishi (arranged for band by Kazuhiro Morita).

“The Maslanka selection is written after words from Saint Francis of Assisi, spoken about the lessons we are taught by our Mother Earth. The title of the Lauridsen piece literally translates ‘Oh Great Mystery,’ and is based on a responsive Christmas chant.

“The Hisaishi piece is music from a Japanese film that explores environmentalism themes and humans effect on the natural world and natural resources through story.”

Tickets are $12 general, $8 for students, available at www.mondaviarts.org, 530-754-2787 or at the door.
