The USA Symphony Band will perform their Fall Concert on Monday, November 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center. The program features music inspired by the Japanese Wind Band Movement. The first half of the performance will highlight cornerstone wind band works from the Japanese wind band repertoire that is commonly used in the All Japan Band Association. The final selection of the concert comes from Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Julie Giroux, titled Symphony IV. Giroux, an American composer, bases this original wind band symphony on a set of six Japanese bookmarks taken from historic Japanese wood-cut prints.
