The theme for the concert is “Fantasy, Reality and Space.” Selections will include “Mars,” the first movement of Gustav Holst’s The Planets, which has been an audience favorite for nearly a century.
Also on the program will be “Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral” from Richard Wagner’s music drama Lohengrin, “Symphonic Suite” from The Right Stuff by Bill Conti, “One Life Beautiful” by Julie Giroux, and “Vulcan” by Michael Daugherty.

The concert is free and open to the public. Following the band concert, TC student Caitlin Richardson will give a voice recital at 5 p.m. in the Jackson-Graeter Backstage Theatre. The recital will feature works from popular musicals such as “The Sound of Music” and “The King and I.” Children from Academie Musique will join Richardson for her opening number.
