TIFFIN — Julie Hale, of Yellow Springs, is a senior majoring in anthropology, and a member of Heidelberg University’s Symphonic Band during the 2015-16 academic year.
The 43-piece band, under the direction of Dr. John E. Owen, will give its fall concert on Saturday, Nov. 14.
During the week in which the nation celebrates Veterans Day, the 43-member band will kick off the concert with “Second Suite for Military Band in F major” by Gustav Holst, followed by Ronald LoPresti’s “Elegy for A Young American.” “Elegy,” composed in 1964, is dedicated to the memory of President John F. Kennedy and explores the various stages of grief the nation encountered upon Kennedy’s assassination.
The band also will perform a John Philip Sousa march, “The Royal Welch Fusiliers March,” Leonard Bernstein’s “Four Dances from West Side Story,” and other pieces.
