Coastal Carolina Universitys Symphonic Band will present its spring concert on Monday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m. in Wheelwright Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
The Symphonic Band, which is comprised of some 50 CCU students of all majors, will perform music from Johann DeMeijs Symphony No. 1 for Wind Orchestra Lord of the Rings. The piece was written in the mid-1980s and won the first prize in the 1989 Sudler International Composition Contest. Lynn Franken, dean of the Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts, will serve as narrator. The music of John Philip Sousa will also be featured on the program, along with arrangements of traditional American folk and popular music. The orchestra is led by James Tully, assistant professor and director of bands at Coastal.
Art work by Coastals graphic design students will be on display in the lobby and featured on the program.
The event is part of Coastals 2003-2004 Cultural Arts Series. For more information, contact the Wheelwright Box Office at 349-2502.
