Revel in the boisterous ballads and rambunctious rhapsodies of Lincolnshire Posy, Percy Grainger's monumental setting of British folksongs for wind band.
Andy Collinsworth and the Sonoma State University Symphonic Wind Ensemble will perform Lincolnshire Posy on March 8 as they launch their tour to Northern California with a 7:30 p.m. concert in Warren Auditorium.
The program will include:
· Lincolnshire Posy, in six movements: Lisbon; Horkstow Grange; Rufford Park Poachers; The Brisk Young Sailor; Lord Melbourne; The Lost Lady Found.
· Martin Ellerby's Paris Sketches, paying homage to neighborhoods in Paris and the composers - Maurice Ravel, Erik Satie and Hector Berlioz - who lived, worked, or passed through them.
· O Magnum Mysterium by American composer Morten Lauridsen, a mystical choral work in a stunning setting for winds.
· March from John Williams' film score to Raiders of the Lost Ark - commonly known as the Indiana Jones theme.
