Ouachita’s Division of Music presents the Symphonic Band in concert March 10

The Division of Music at Ouachita Baptist University will present the Symphonic Band in concert Thursday, March 10, at 7:30 p.m. in Jones Performing Arts Center. The performance is free and open to the public.

“We will present music that spans nearly 300 years,” said Conductor Jim Lloyd, instructor of music and athletic band director at Ouachita. “From the Scottish folk song ‘Loch Lomond,’ composed in 1746, to ‘Lightning Field,’ which depicts a modern-day natural art exhibit, the Ouachita Symphonic Band will take the audience on a musical journey through time and world cultures.”

“Loch Lomond,” by Frank Ticheli, tells the story of two Scottish soldiers imprisoned at Carlisle Castle in England following the Battle of Culloden Moor, while John Mackey’s “Lightening Field” takes its title from a work of art by Walter De Maria. The Symphonic Band will also perform “Prairie Dances” by David Holsinger, a musical portrait of the cattle region of Texas after the arrival of the railroad in 1882;  “Gabriel’s Oboe,” written by Ennio Morricone for the 1986 film “The Mission” and featuring Brock Wade, a junior instrumental music education major from Plano, Texas, on oboe; and “Pink Lemonade—A Circus Parade,” originally written for banjo by A.J. Weidt in 1921.

Performances by Ouachita bands are available to view on the OBUBand channel on YouTube. For more information about the Symphonic Band, contact Jim Lloyd at [email protected] or at (870) 245-4197.
