Rose-Hulman Concert Band and Jazz Ensemble Concert
The Concert Band will open their portion of the program with a concert standard, the First Suite in E-flat by Gustav Holst, which will highlight many fine soloists. This will be followed by Fantasia on an Alleluia Hymn which will use Rose-Hulman’s beautiful organ, played by Steve Newman, our Rose Choir director. For a popular piece, we will be performing Selections from Phantom of the Opera. Next will be the Tuba Tiger Rag, featuring members of our tuba section, and then we will close with a march entitled Them Basses.
The Rose-Hulman Jazz Engineering Department will feature works by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, Hank Levy, Frank Foster, and others. There will be swing, Latin, pop, and a piece in 9/4 time.
