2023-2024 Winter Concert & Livestream

The Cascade Winds 2023-2024 season Winter Concert is coming up this weekend – Sunday, March 10th, 2023. The 2:00 pm concert will be held in the Summit High School Auditorium and the doors will open at 1:30 pm. As with all of our performances, there is no admission charge.

The concert will open with one of the classics in the concert band repertoire, Robert Russell Bennett’s “Suite of Old American Dances.” This work features five movements, representing five genres of music of that are quintessentially American, including the Cake Walk, Western One-Step and Rag. The other major work on the concert is Alfred Reed’s “Sixth Suite for Band,” which is a ragtag collection of movements including Halloween Hobgoblin, where some decidedly unusual sounds will emanate from the ensemble. Karl L. King’s circus march “Invictus,” composed for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, will be played at the traditional lightning-fast ‘screamer’ tempo, contrasting nicely with the calm and serene “Rippling Watercolors” by Brian Balmages. The powerful and soul-searching “Kaddish” by W. Francis McBeth, the percussion feature, “Four Dance Episodes” by Gary Gilroy, and Robert Sheldon’s sprightly “Otter Point Holiday” round out the concert repertoire.
