Throughout recorded history, music has played an important role in celebrations. Whether people are dancing the night away to let off steam, memorializing the life of a loved one, or simply enjoying a concert, music is there to rejoice, eulogize, and comfort. The repertoire includes pieces that are beloved to global audiences including Shostakovich's "Festive Overture" (Russia), Grainger's "Scotch Strathspey and Reel" (Scotland), and Brahms' "Blessed are They" (Germany), alongside newer works such as Giroux's "Evening Snow at Kambara" (Japan), and Day's "Havana" (Cuba). The American work on this performance is Ticheli's masterwork "Blue Shades", which is one of the most performed wind band works of the past decade.
