Newfolden Elementary Proudly Presents:

OF THEE I SING!

A Patriotic Spring Concert

April 12, 2012 - 7:00 PM MCC Gymnasium


ELEMENTARY BAND

Elizabeth Winslow - Director

Valiance: A Heroic Overture for Band......................... Robert W. Smith Midnight Sky.....................................................................Brian Balmages Colliding Visions...............................................................Brian Balmages This piece was commissioned by the Prairie Hill Elementary School in Illinois, but shortly after, the band director discovered that the 5-8 band program was to be cut the following year. As a result, this was the final piece the band ever played. It demonstrates “colliding visions” of the district budget and the need for the arts. We play this piece with pride in and thanks for our band program and our community’s strong support for the arts.

Spirit of New Orleans............................................................Paul Murtha “This march is dedicated to the people of New Orleans who, after the devastation caused by hurricane Katrina in August of 2005, “refused to go quietly into the night...” Their strength, sense of community, and determination to rebuild is - Paul Murtha a testament to the Spirit of New Orleans.”
