The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Campus Bands will be presenting a two theme concert.

The Jack R. Snider Concert Band’s portion is titled, “Imagination & Invention” and includes Imaginarium (Standridge), The Machine Awakes (Bryant), Electricity (Bukvich), Foundry (Mackey), Daydream (Mahr), and Whirlybird (Stalter). The latter is inspired by a ride in a helicopter while Bryant’s The Machine Awakes evokes the feeling that something very large and ominous has taken life.

After a brief intermission, The Donald A. Lentz Concert Band will perform their program called, “Mind, Body, & Spirit” which includes Joy (Ticheli), Hambone (Larsen), Cheaha Sketches (Roszell), Blessed Are They (Brahms/Buehlman), New Wade’n Water (Hailstork), and Groove Music (Balmages). The piece Hambone features body percussion being performed by the band’s wind players while New Wade’n Water takes a fresh look at the traditional spiritual.

The Campus Band is the university’s largest concert band. Its select mission is to provide a high quality performance venue for musicians representing a wide array of musical backgrounds and major fields of study within the university. The objectives of the Campus Band are to provide an opportunity for instrumentalists of diverse abilities and interests an opportunity to perform quality literature, and to hone their technical and musical skills through the rehearsal process; to provide a laboratory environment for music education students to gain vital performance experience on secondary instruments; to encourage members of the university’s athletic bands to maintain a high level of musical activity throughout the year; and to serve as a resource for music educators and aspiring teachers through the study and performance of high quality repertoire appropriate for developing ensembles.
