‘Nothing Blue’ to be played in ETSU’s Opening Fall Bands Concert

ETSU Wind Ensemble

JOHNSON CITY (Oct. 16, 2013) – “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, but Nothing Blue” is the theme of the Opening Fall Bands Concert by East Tennessee State University’s Chamber Winds and Symphonic Winds. 

The free public concert will be held Thursday, Oct. 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the Science Hill High School Auditorium.

With a twist on the saying brides have used for ages to remember items to wear or carry on their wedding days, this concert will feature works that are either classic or vintage, new or contemporary, or contain material borrowed from another source, but it includes nothing “blue.”  The program will consist of such selections as Charles Gounod’s “Petite Symphonie,” Gordon Jacob’s “Old Wine in New Bottles,” Samuel R. Hazo’s “Ride,” Clifton Williams’ “Symphonic Dance #3 (‘Fiesta’)” and Morton Gould’s “Ballad for Band.”

The Chamber Winds and Symphonic Winds are directed by Dr. Christian Zembower, director of bands in the ETSU Department of Music.
