The Casper College Concert Band will perform the last of its two “beLoved” concerts for the spring. The “BeLoved Places” concert will take place on Friday, May 10 at 7 p.m. in the Wheeler Concert Hall.

Under the direction of Joshua R. Mietz, DMA, “beLoved Places” “… will feature music about the places and composers we love,” said Mietz, adding “We hope that (when audience members go on their) summer travels, they are able to visit some of the places we will be portraying musically.”

The concert will feature William Schuman’s “George Washington Bridge,” Dmitri Shostakovich’s “Festive Overture,” Percy Grainger’s “Colonial Song,” Clare Grundman’s “The Blue and The Gray (Civil War Suite),” John Mackey’s “Lightning Field,” a new work by David Gillingham, and David Maslanka’s “Give Us This Day.”

“Each piece is a unique musical reflection of places like New York City, Civil War battle sites, the New Mexican desert, and Glacier National Park,” noted Mietz.

The “beLoved Places” concert is free and open to the public. Wheeler Concert Hall is located in the Music Building on the Casper College campus.
