Featuring the music of J.S. Bach, Cecile Chaminade, Philip Sparke, and Charles Ives

inspired by popular songs and dance scenes. The Band will feature the virtuosity of Musician 1st

and technically demanding pillar of flute literature. Other featured works on the program include
Philip Sparke’s Sudler Composition Prize-winning “Dance Movements,” Percy Grainger’s lush
setting of "Irish Tune from County Derry," Charles Ives’s “Variations on ‘Jerusalem the Golden,’” and
other works by Bach, and Sousa.
