Oct. 21 concert opens new season for Symphonic Winds
The Lake Havasu Symphonic Winds starts its new season with a concert Oct. 21. It is at 3 p.m. at the Lake Havasu Performing Arts Center at Lake Havasu High School. Tickets are $10 and students are admitted free.
Over a dozen musical selections will be performed including “A Walk in the Morning Sun” by Pierre La Plante, “Harvest Fair” by Anthony Susi, “Nearer My God to Thee” by Luther Henderson, who as many Duke Ellington fans will remember, served as Ellington’s classical music arranger for many years.
A solo performance is planned by gifted saxophonist Zach Greenfield. Greenfield will perform “Evening in the Country” by Hungarian composer Bela Bartok.
There will also be a tribute to the military with a performance of “Armed Forces Salute,” a medley of songs for each branch of service.
Veterans and active duty military members in the audience will be invited to stand to be recognized and thanked for their service to our country.
The Winds, a 32-piece volunteer ensemble, has been entertaining in the area since 1998. The musicians are led by conductor Kimberly Lehmann.
