On April 25 at 8:00 p.m. in the John L. Hill Chapel, the Georgetown College Tiger Symphonic Band will be presenting its Annual Spring Concert. The concert, titled “YHM@G… Celebrating the Band Scholars and our Tiger Bands at Georgetown College,” celebrates the 168th year of bands at Georgetown College and is unique as it marks the Tiger Bands as the oldest college or university band program in the Commonwealth.
The concert itself will feature works by Grainger, Holsinger and Saucedo. Highlighting the special night will be student solo performances by Lauren Kohake on flute performing Mozart’s “Concerto No. 2” and Eddie White on bass clarinet performing “The Old Grumpy Bear” by Julius Fucik.
Throughout the concert, special honors will be presented celebrating the singular accomplishments of the band scholars. President and Mrs. Crouch will also be honored for their long– time dedication to the band scholars and to Georgetown College. In addition to these individual acknowledgments, senior band scholars will be honored by the complete Tiger Symphonic Band who will perform “The Old Scottish Melody” (arranged by Charles Wiley) while a special video presentation is shown.
After the concert, a reception will be held in the foyer of the Chapel for the band members and all friends and family. The Tiger Symphonic Band would like to thank everyone for their continued support and hope to see one and all on Thursday, April 25 at 8:00 p.m. in the John L. Hill Chapel to enjoy an evening of good times and delightful music.
