The University of Central Arkansas Symphonic and University Bands will be in concert for the final time this spring on April 26 in the Snow Fine Arts Center Recital Hall.

The concert, free and open to the public, is set for 7:30 p.m.

Associate Director of Bands Brantley Douglas said the evening would include a wide variety of music.

Program for the University Band will include “Flourish for Wind Band” by Williams, conducted by senior music education major Davis Norton; “American Jubilee” by Booker, conducted by graduate wind conducting major Mykala Parker; “The Wayfaring Stranger” by Rouse, conducted by graduate wind conducting major Justin Gavito; “Overture In B Flat” by Giovannini, conducted by graduate wind conducting major Cody Ford; and “Imaginarium” by Standridge, conducted by graduate wind conducting major McKenzie Vivianno.

Program for the Symphonic Band will include “Gavorkna Fanfare” by Stamp, conducted by Vivianno; “Black Is the Color Of My True Love’s Hair” by Reed, conducted by Gavito; and “The Divine Comedy” by Smith, conducted by Douglas.

“Of particular note is ‘The Divine Comedy’,” Douglas said. “This four-movement work requires the band to sing, chant, stomp their feet and make other interesting music effects with lots of percussion. It is a very powerful piece that is based on Dante Alighieri’s literary classic of the same name.”
