Fall 2021 events

"Unconquerable Souls" - Choir Concert
Friday, October 15, 7 p.m.
Community Concert Hall
$10 for adults, K12 and FLC students admitted free of charge.

The music of this concert celebrates the resilience of the human soul. The overarching theme can be summarized in a passage from the poem “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley:

Out of the night that covers me
Black as the pit from pole to pole
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul

From serious pieces about War to light-hearted fun, this concert runs the gamut of musical expression related to human struggle and imminent victory.

"Dark to Light" - Band Concert
Friday, October 22, 7 p.m.
Community Concert Hall
$10 for adults, K12 and FLC students admitted free of charge.

Anne McGinty’s Spirals is inspired by the spiral of life we all travel around. In the composer’s words, “we all travel around the spiral, never returning to exactly the same place. Spirals express our vitality for life, with twists and turns representing the ongoing transition in our lives.” True to her inspiration, Spirals is uplifting and energetic, yet unpredictable and unsettling. It leaves us longing for closure. That longing and frustration is embodied in Chang Su-Koh’s Lament for Wind Ensemble. As the name suggests, Lament is a dark and powerful work that expresses the sorrow, anger, and frustration that we experience in life. On the complete other end of the emotional spectrum is Anthony Iannaccone’s After A Gentle Rain. A wash of colors, Iannaccone’s work conjures images of freshly fallen rain clinging to blades of grass after a gentle rain. As the sun reflects through those rain drops, we recall old memories, experience flashes of inspiration, and bask in the fresh air under the warm sun. We hope you enjoy our program!

Pulse Percussion Concert - Nov. 9Percussion Ensembles Concert
Tuesday, November 9, 7 p.m.
Community Concert Hall
$10 for adults, K12 and FLC students admitted free of charge.

On November 9th, the Fort Lewis College Percussion Ensemble will present a program of music written for both pitched and non-pitched percussion instruments. The program will begin with Brad Slayter’s exciting composition, Breakdown. The composer states that the “main theme throughout the piece is AGGRESSION. It starts off strong and ends even stronger.” Pulse, by Vince Wallace is a quartet for pitched mallet instruments. This piece is loaded with contrapuntal lines and fast runs up and down the marimbas, which is sure to get the listener’s pulse going even faster! Things will then lighten up significantly with the fun Raspberry Tango, by Justin Schulze. The performance will close with Andrea Venet’s, Omnes Trio, which utilizes an instrumentation of just 3 pairs of bongos, several small gongs and one bass drum, which is shared by all three players simultaneously! This composition is exciting and intense, and a great way to end the concert!
