Allen Community Band Memorial Weekend Concert

Friday, May 25, 2018

The Allen Community Band honors those we have lost with a selection of patriotic tunes.

The Allen Community Band, under the direction of Craig Logan, will honor those we have lost by opening the concert with “Semper Fidelis” by John Phillip Sousa, followed by “On A Hymnsong of Philip Bliss” by David Holsinger.

The concert continues with Edward Gregson’s “Festivo,” a multi-metered and fast-moving selection and “Pas Redouble’,” which showcases the technical skills of the woodwinds with sweeping scalier runs highlighted by brass interludes of contrasting rhythms and styles. 

“March Hongroise,” sometimes known as the "Hungarian March," was the unofficial state anthem of Hungary before Ferenc Kölcsey wrote the ”Himnusz,” which is now Hungary’s official national anthem. Thought to have been originally penned around 1730, Hector Berlioz included the music in his composition La Damnation de Faust in 1846. 

Concluding the concert, the band will perform John Phillip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever,” featuring piccolo soloist, Julie Bell. This is perhaps the most well-known American march in the world.
