Fiesta with Salem Concert Band
October 30 at 3 pm at Hudson Hall
November 5 at 7 pm at Central High School
Join the Celebration!
The Salem Concert Band, under the direction of conductor John Skelton, will celebrate Hispanic culture with our Fall 2016 concert, “Fiesta!” The band will give two performances of this concert. The first will be on Sunday, October 30, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. in Hudson Hall at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. The second performance will be in the Central High School Auditorium in Independence, Oregon on Saturday, November 5, at 7 pm.
The concert will depict many facets of Hispanic culture, beginning with music inspired by Aztec history and traditions. One of the most famous compositions of Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas, Sensemayá, is based on the poem by Cuban poet Nicolás Guillén. A narrated fable about The Rabbit and the Coyote will be followed by a set of Mexican children’s songs. A Venezuelan dance, the lively Joropo, concludes the first half of the show. Our audience will be entertained by the Woodburn High School Mariachi Band during intermission.
Kevin Vaughn, bass clarinet soloist, will perform the virtuosic new concerto The Castle of Dr. Bassclar by Spanish composer Ferrer Ferran, inspired by the Robert Louis Stevenson novel “The Strange Case of Dr Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde”. The work will receive a dramatic new interpretation by Kristie Lauren, dancer with the Rainbow Dance Theatre in Monmouth.
The band will honor the Day of the Dead celebration with two selections. The concert will conclude with a set of familiar Mexican songs, sung by Roberto Vazquez, a wonderful singer who recently moved to our area from Mexico. The concert celebrates the spirit of Fiesta, and honors many aspects of Hispanic culture.
