UC Symphonic Band Presents Spring Concert


The UC Symphonic Band presented their annual Spring Concert on Sunday, April 17th.

WILLIAMSBURG, KY – University of the Cumberlands (UC) Music Department’s Symphonic Band presented their annual Spring Concert on Sunday April 17th, 2011.

Each piece was directed by Steven Sudduth, and included in the playlist were (in order of appearance): El Capitan March by John Phillips Sousa, Firework by Jan Van der Roost, Concertino by Carl Maria Von Weber, Air For Band by Frank Erickson, Puszta by Jan Van der Roost, and His Honor by Fillmore.

The popular piece Concertino features a powerful solo on clarinet, performed by faculty member David Threlkeld.

The UC Instrumental Music Department also recognized the final symphonic band concert of influential seniors Jared Adams (London, KY), Michael Rice (Williamsburg, KY) and Matt Pyles (Corbin, KY).

“Performing my last concert with the UC wind band is definitely a bittersweet feeling,” said senior Jared Adams, who plans to take a full time position as Director of Percussion at Corbin High School as well as the position of Director of Music at Community Christian Church in London, Ky.

“I've been involved with this program since 2005 and over all I've have learned more about myself as a musician and a person than I could have ever learned on my own.”
