Announcing our 2015–2016 Season!

This season the Concord Band continues its exploration of the great works for symphonic concert band. 
  • The fall concert, Mystical Moments, presents John Krance’s exhilarating wind band transcription of Orff’s beloved Carmina Burana. Entirely instrumental in concept, the vocal parts have been fully incorporated into the band. Krance captures the throbbing rhythms, tenderness and heartfelt simplicity of the original composition in this not to be missed performance. 
  • Music from the Woods, our second formal concert, features the brilliant artistry of marimba percussion soloist Wei-Chen Lin in the Concerto for Marimba and Wind Ensemble (Chung).
  • Our 2015 Holiday Pops concert presents BSO principal oboist John Ferrillo as guest soloist in a program that includes works for oboe and band, along with holiday favorites, and an appearance by the man in the red suit! The Holiday Pops, a Concord tradition since 1976, is the perfect kickoff for your holiday season and sells out early. 
  • Our Spring Pops features jazz vocalist Amanda Carr, another Concord favorite. Admission prices to Pops concerts are family friendly; there is no charge for the October and March concerts. Don’t miss a minute of this very special season!
