Crane’s symphonic and concert bands perform Thursday, Oct. 3


SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music will present a concert featuring the Crane Symphonic Band and Crane Concert Band at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Helen M. Hosmer Concert Hall.

Directed by Brian Doyle, the Crane Symphonic Band will perform a series of “celestial” works, including two movements of Gustav Holst’s masterwork, “The Planets.” It also will perform “Mars, the Bringer of War” and “Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity,” two of Holst’s most iconic pieces.

Continuing the planetary trend, the symphonic band will present Frank Ticheli’s “Gaian Visions,” a cautionary work meditating on the perils our planet faces. The program will be rounded out with Vincent Persichetti’s meditative “O Cool is the Valley,” a reflection on the James Joyce poem, as well as “Prelude and Fugue in G-Minor,” a transcription of the organ work by Johann Sebastian Bach.

The Crane Concert Band will play works by Carolyn Norman Dello Joio, Kenneth Hesketh and Richard Wagner. This year, visiting assistant professor of music Patricia Cornett will direct the concert band.

The concert is free.
