19"Bandancing," happening Tuesday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m., is part of the Fayetteville Symphonic Band’s concert series.
"The Fayetteville Symphonic Band is a community of instrumentalists who are serious about keeping good wind band music in Fayetteville. The band’s membership is around 55, consisting mostly of wind and percussion musicians. The director of the band is Dr. Daniel McCloud, who plays in the Fayetteville Symphony’s percussion section and also is their Assistant Conductor,” explains Anna Meyer, the executive director at the symphony.
Band Director Dr. Daniel McCloud gave a great rundown of what concert-goers should expect.
“‘Bandancing’ will feature a musical program inspired by dance! Whether you prefer the ‘Cake Walk’ and ‘Schottische,’ or the shuffle and samba are more your speed, the concert promises to be groovy, light-hearted and musically satisfying.
Along with familiar composers such as Karl L. King (The Trombone King), Jack Stamp (Bandancing), and Robert Russell Bennett (Suite of Old American Dances), we'll feature new compositions from Methodist University student, Jay Berry (Howlin', Moanin', and Growlin'); and founding band member, Jonathan Andrews (Strong),” he said.
This hour-long concert will start at 7:30 p.m. in the Huff Concert Hall on the Methodist University campus.
