Two Ashford University Groups Plan Spring Concerts
Concerts are free and open to the public
Music will fill Ashford University’s Clinton, Iowa campus on Saturday, April 26 when two groups present their spring concerts. Performing first will be the Concert Choir at 2 p.m., followed by the Wind Ensemble at 3:15 p.m. Both free concerts will be held in room C3600 of St. Clare Hall and are open to the public.
Kicking off the music-filled afternoon, the Concert Choir’s program “will consist of sacred anthems, secular madrigals, folk songs, and spirituals from all eras, including works by Gabriel Fauré, John Dowland, Josquin des Prez, Aaron Copland, and Jester Hairston,” said Dr. Rob Engelson, director.
Conductor Steve Little said the Ashford University Wind Ensemble will present a variety of musical offerings, including “The Light Cavalry Overture” by Franz von Suppé, arranged by Henry Fillmore; a fairly obscure march by John Philip Sousa entitled “The National Game”; highlights from the Broadway musical Miss Saigon; Harold L. Walters’ “Instant Concert”; J.S. Bach's “Little Fugue in G Minor,” arranged by Ronald Romm, formerly of the Canadian Brass; and “Musette and March,” also by J.S. Bach and arranged by John Kinyon.
