Spring 2011 Concert Band & Orchestra Preview
Saddle up! This spring the TWU Concert Band and Orchestra go west for two evenings of music inspired by the American plains. Aaron Copland’s “Rodeo” and “Billy the Kid” incorporate cowboy songs and folk tunes while John Williams’ score to “The Cowboys” evokes both the joy of riding the range and the loneliness of life on the vast prairies.
This event is part of the Festival of the Arts, Media + Culture at Trinity Western University, March 29 - April 11 — two weeks of art, literature, music, film, and theatre events that showcase and celebrate the creative activity of TWU students and faculty.
