“Originals”: City of Fairfax Band Fall Concert – 2019
October 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The creation of new music for symphonic band has been a major part of The City of Faifax Band’s history. Our 50th anniversary season kicks off with a special program dedicated to music written for and premiered by CFB. Composed by some of America’s most noted composers and representing a wide array of styles, many of these works have found their way into the standard literature and are being performed by concert bands worldwide. A major feature of the program is the World Premiere of CFB’s latest commissioned work, A Southern Jubilee by legendary Hollywood film composer Bruce Broughton. Other works on the program are David Uber’s Overture for Symphonic Band (“Lord Fairfax”), Samuel Laudenslager Sr.’s City of Fairfax Band March, Travis Cross’s And the Grass Sings in the Meadows, Mark Camphouse’s Foundation and Ira Hearshen’s ballroom dance suite, Aragon: 1945-1952.
