Get ready for a big, brassy sound in the Mondavi Center’s resonant Jackson Hall, as nearly 350 band musicians from local schools and universities take the stage for the Causeway Youth Band Festival.

On Sunday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m., student musicians from more than 50 schools in the region — including the area’s two largest universities, UC Davis and Sacramento State — will perform together at the Mondavi Center. This concert is the culmination of a weeklong Causeway Band Festival, being held this year for the third time.

The program will feature many works by Samuel Hazo, the featured clinician and conductor of the festival. An internationally recognized composer, he has written for university and public school ensembles, television, radio and the stage.

His music is included in the series “Teaching Music Through Performance in Band,” and he has taught music teachers at every grade level from kindergarten through college, including as a high school and university director.

Hazo’s own compositions will be featured at this Causeway Youth Band Festival, and he will conduct rehearsals and performances at each age level.

Two specially composed “festival bands,” one featuring students in seventh through ninth grades and the other with students in 10th through 12th grades, and both college bands will perform.

The last piece on the program will bring together all of the groups — nearly 350 musicians — in a performance of Hazo’s “Novo Lenio.” Also on the program are Hazo’s works “Siorai September,” “In Flight” and “Arabesque.”

Other compositions by Gustav Holst, Percy Grainger, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Robert Sheldon and David Bobrowitz also will be performed.

The festival is organized by the two university band directors: Pete Nowlen, who conducts the University Concert Band at UCD, and Robert Halseth of Sacramento State, conductor of the Sac State Symphonic Wind Ensemble.

Tickets are $12 general and $6 for students and children, available at www.mondaviarts.org or by calling (530) 754-2787.
