Instrumental Music to host ‘A Concert in the Park’ May 5

May 02, 2013

The Newman University Instrumental Music Ensembles will present “A Concert in the Park” on May 5 at 2 p.m. The Concert Band, Jazz Band and String Ensemble will perform this “en plein air” concert on the grounds of the University, in front of Heimerman Hall.

The program will include works by Beethoven, Berlin, and Strauss. The audience will also have the pleasure of hearing fascinating works by some lesser know composers of by gone eras, and one work that is quite new, “Kellogg Flyover” by Dr. Guy Vollen. This semester we had the pleasure of rehearsing with Dr. Vollen. This was a wonderful opportunity for students to gain insight into the composer’s process and we look forward to sharing the fruit of that experience, and many other enjoyable works with the Newman community on Sunday.

In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the De Mattias Performance Hall. For more information email [email protected] or call 316-942-4291, ext. 2651.
