Symphonic Wind Orchestra
Programme to include:
Holst Suite no 2 in F
Shostakovich March from Jazz Suite no 2
Bernstein Symphonic Dances from 'West Side Story'
Three top ensembles from the RCM Junior Department present a spirited programme of popular 20th-century works.
Bernstein's Symphonic Dances, drawn from his iconic musical West Side Story, contain some of the composer's most famous music, running the gamut from invigoratingly lively to serenely romantic. We also hear Shostakovich’s jazz inspired March and a suite for military band by RCM alumnus Gustav Holst.
