The Heidelberg Symphonic Band will present a concert entitled “Whatsoever Things” on Saturday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m. The theme refers to a composition of the same title by composer Mark Camphouse which will be performed. Camphouse’s work is dedicated to John P. Paynter, longtime Director of Bands at Northwestern University, and is inspired by Northwestern’s motto: “ Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.” (Phillipians 4:8)
The band will welcome to the podium Elizabeth Tracy, a student in the Heidelberg Master of Music Education program, who will conduct Ralph Vaughn Williams’ “Toccata Marziale.” Ms. Tracy is a Graduate Assistant in the MME program. Also on the program will be Percy Grainger’s “Gumsuckers March”, Alfred Reed’s “Hymn Variants”, “March from William Byrd Suite” by Gordon Jacob, and a band transcription of Respighi’s “Pines of the Appian Way.”
The program will be held in Ohl Concert Hall, and will also be streamed live on the Heidelberg website: www.heidelberg.edu.
