GEORGETOWN, KY – Georgetown College’s Tiger Symphonic Band presents its annual spring concert on Thursday, April 24, at 8 p.m. in John L. Hill Chapel.

This year’s concert theme is “Fantasy and Dreams.” It features works by Arlen, Maslanka, Mussorgsky, Smith, and Whitacre. Admission is free. The public is welcome.

A special highlight of the evening will be an alto saxophone solo by senior Nathan Vertuca, a Spanish and Biology major from Midway, Ky.

All senior “band scholars,” as the band members are called, will receive acknowledgements and recognition during the evening and be honored with a popular and moving Tiger Symphonic Band performance of The Old Scottish Melody (arranged by Charles Wiley) accompanying a special video presentation.

The Fantasy and Dreams Concert celebrates the 169th year of Bands at Georgetown College, as the Band Scholars of today embody excellence and live up to the band’s historic epigraph … Music for All Occasions.

A reception will be held in the foyer of the Chapel for the Band Scholars, their families and all friends of the Tiger Bands immediately following the concert.

“An evening of delightful music,” says Dr. Peter LaRue, who directs the Tiger Symphonic Band as well as the Grrrr. . .Tiger Pep Band, adding, “We hope to see you there.”
