CONCERT: "Holiday Cheer" - Lehman College and Community Band
BRONX, NY The Lehman College & Community Band celebrates the season with Holiday Cheer! a concert featuring a mix of holiday selections and classics for wind band. This event, which is open to the public, will take place on Sunday, December 18, at 2 p.m. in the Lovinger Theatre.
Led by Professor Alan Hollander of the Music Program, the ensemble will perform a wide range of works, including perennial holiday favorites Christmas Festival and Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson, another sleigh ride, Troika from the Lieutenant Kije Suite by Sergei Prokofiev, and a medley of traditional Hanukah tunes entitled Festive Sounds of Hanukah.
Also featured will be a slice of Americana: Norman Rockwell Suite by Hayato Hirose inspired by three of Rockwells famous paintings, the timeless Greensleeves arranged by prolific American composer Alfred Reed, and Variations on a Theme of Paganini by James Barnes, a tour de force for the ensemble, which features every section of the band.
Rounding out the program will be a humorous medley by David Lovrien entitled Minor Alterations: Christmas Through the Looking Glass, a game of musical hide-and-seek for the audience, in which familiar Christmas carols are transposed from major to minor keys then disguised and layered to create something new and innovative.
