This program, entitled “Centennial Kickoff,” marks the beginning of our year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of Bands at Butler University. The concert will feature classic original works for band by composers John Philip Sousa, Morton Gould, and Ron Nelson, and transcriptions of two thrilling orchestral works by Walter Piston and Alberto Ginastera. The concert will also include the local premiere of Aaron Perrine’s “Forever Radiant,” a new work for chamber winds that will be directed by Dr. Matthew Smith.
