On Sunday October 10 at 2 p.m., The United States Coast Guard Band presents “Festive Fall.” The program begins with Shostakovich’s aptly named “Festive Overture,” then, Kathryn Salfelder’s “Cathedrals” soars with energy and optimism. Flute Soloist Musician 1st Class Meera Gudipati brings virtuosity and technology to the stage in Grant Luhmann’s mesmerizing “Panacea.” John Philip Sousa’s march, “Glory of the Yankee Navy” is followed by Benjamin Britten’s dynamic set of “Four Sea Interludes.”
