SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel University Symphonic Band will perform a concert on Tuesday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m., in the Barnett Recital Hall, under the direction of Matthew Moore.

The concert is free and open to the public. The Barnett Recital Hall is just south of the Robert H. Spence Chapel, facing Glenstone Ave.

The Symphonic Band is currently comprised of 31 Evangel University students. It serves an important role for the University in that it provides the student body with the opportunity to continue their participation in a musical ensemble regardless of their major.

“I made the decision to go back to more traditional symphonic band repertoire this semester,” said Moore, director of bands and a 2001 graduate of Evangel. “The students love the music and it shows. It should be a great concert!”

The band will play the following pieces:

  • National Emblem March, by Edwin E. Bagley
  • American Overture, by Joseph Willcox Jenkins
  • Lux Aurumque, by Eric Whitacre
  • 2nd Suite in F, by Gustav Holst
  • Noisy Wheels of Joy, by Eric Whitacre
  • Abram’s Pursuit, by David Holsinger

Kalise Garner, senior music education major from Rolla, Mo., will be conducting “Noisy Wheels of Joy.”

“Abram’s Pursuit” will be conducted by Darren Eddington, assistant director of bands.
