Our December 7th concert at Comstock Concert Hall was a musical celebration; specifically, a Pre-Midwest Clinic Celebration Concert honoring the North Hardin High School Wind Symphony! This fine ensemble, led by Brian Froedge, with assistants Daniel Reams and Brittany Ford, will be featured in performance at the Midwest Clinic International Band, Orchestra and Music Conference (www.midwestclinic.org) in Chicago, Illinois on Thursday, December 17th at 4:30 pm.
The joint concert was a natural, as the members of the Louisville Concert Band reminisced their own 2013 Midwest Clinic performance experience and delighted in cheering on the North Hardin High School Wind Symphony as previewed what will be a spectacular performance in Chicago! The Comstock Hall concert was a musical feast delivered by both ensembles. The North Hardin Wind Symphony served up works by Franz von Suppé, Frederick Speck, Samuel Hazo, and others, while our Chamber Winds Louisville and Louisville Concert Band followed with dessert courses featuring chamber music by Gordon Jacob and Nebojša Živković, full-cast works by Persichetti, Brahms, Gallante, and marches by Fillmore and Jewell.
