The Black Hills State University Community Band will present a fall concert Monday, Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the Clare and Josef Meier Recital Hall on the BHSU Campus.
The band is made up of some of the finest musicians in the northern hills. This concert will feature a variety of new, old and 'recycled' music. "Reworking a piece of existing music was something that was a common occurrence in the past," according to band director Christopher Hahn, professor of music at BHSU. "Two of the pieces we are playing are recycled from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. J.S. Jig turns music of J.S. Bach into an Irish jig while the Giles Farnaby Suite is based on early keyboard music from the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book."
Other pieces on the concert include a collection of melodies by West Side Story composer Leonard Bernstein and an old fashioned circus march.
The concert is open to the public at no charge, although donations for music scholarships are appreciated. For more information contact email Christopher.Hahn@BHSU.edu or call (605) 642-6888. To learn more about the BHSU music program visit www.BHSU.edu/Music.
