Concert band performs April 7-8 at ABAC

TIFTON — Due to the overflow crowd at the fall performance of the ABAC Concert Band, two spring concert performances will be held April 7-8 at 7 p.m.in Howard Auditorium.  The first concert on April 7 will take place after the band’s dress rehearsal and is catered to ABAC students and prospective high school recruits.  The concert on April 8 will be open to the community.  Director of Concert Bands Johnny Folsom encourages community members to come on Tuesday evening, but if conflicts arise, guests are welcome to come to the April 7 program.      

The public is invited to attend this special event and the admission is free.  Seating is limited; so arrive early for a good seat.  

The concert begins with the first movement of Ralph Ford’s descriptive composition describing the Canadian Rockies entitled “Royal Canadian Sketches.” Then the ABAC Band will break new ground by performing a transcription of the second movement of the consummate Spanish guitar work “Concierto de Aranjuez” by Joaquin Rodrigos.  Music major Wes Trull of Fitzgerald will be featured on guitar for this piece.  

Retiring ABAC Jazz Band director Don Coates will be the guest conductor.  Coates served for many years as the head of the music program at ABAC and is credited for the program’s outstanding reputation throughout the collegiate world.  He will conduct John Philip Sousa’s “Liberty Bell” march.

For more information contact Folsom at 229-391-4944.
