Montana Tech Band Presents
The Montana Tech Band’s Spring Concert, “The Joy of Spring” is Sunday, May 6th in the Montana Tech Auditorium at 3:00 PM. This concert is free and the public is cordially invited.
The featured selection is Into the Joy of Spring, by James Swearingen. The first movement, Winter’s Fury is exuberant and you might find that it reminds you of a Butte winter. The second movement expresses the first warm days of spring and features Ben McArthur on piano. The third movement brings the piece to a jubilant conclusion with the lilting Celebration of Joy.
The spring focus of the concert continues with Edvard Grieg’s “March of the Trolls”. Even Trolls look forward to spring! Spring is also marching season for bands. While the Tech Band won’t be marching, it will perform three more marches including Garde Du Corps by R.B. Hall, Colonel Bogey by Kenneth Alford, and Amparito Roca by Jaime Texidor.
The final selection of the concert is An Irish Rhapsody by Clare Grundman. It includes the folk melodies The Morren (Minstrel Boy), I Know Where I'm Going, Shepher's Lamb Reel, Cockles and Mussels, The Rakes of Mallow and Kathleen O'More.
