Texas A&M University-Kingsville bands perform twice every semester.
They include the TAMUK Concert Band and Wind Symphony. Those bands performed in at Jones Auditorium, Thursday, Nov. 3.
Presenting with Dr. Scott Anthony Jones as conductor and Dr. Brett Richardson, from University of the Incarnate Word, guest conductor, the bands presented an array of music.
“I seemed to experience an overwhelming feeling of excitement playing with these astounding musicians. Just listening to [ the Wind Symphony] perform made my heart ache and cry for joy,” said Miranda Garcia, Music Education major.
Music selection for Concert Band:
“Jig” from St. Paul’s Suite by Gustav Holst, Whatsoever Things by Mark Camphouse, The Sea Treaders by W. Francis McBeth.
Music selection for Wind Symphony:
Procession of Nobles by Nocolai Rmsky-Korsakov, Lux Aurumque by Eric Whitacre, Fantasies on a Theme by Norman Dello Joio, and The Frozen Cathedral by John Mackey.
“One of my favorite pieces we played was Whatsoever Things. Other than having a cool story behind it, the piece had amazing horn parts in it and just made the piece a whole lot better,” said Garcia.
