City of Fairfax Band @ Fairfax High School
October 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Begin with Gustav Holst’s musical portrayal of the planet Mars: the Bringer of War, from The Planets. Gaze at the nighttime sky to John Philip Sousa’s Looking Upward Suite. Fly through a constellation with Julie Giroux’s Journey Through Orion. And bring it all home with John Williams’ Adventures on Earth from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. This exciting program features music by these composers who looked to the heavens for inspiration in their work. National Symphony Orchestra trumpeter Steven Hendrickson takes the stage performing Bruce Broughton’s Excursions. A wonderful way to begin a season of Journeys with the City of Fairfax Band!
