The Tabor College Symphonic Band will present its home concert at 4 p.m., Sunday, April 29 in the Tabor College Chapel. The public is invited to attend.
Selections from the ensemble’s repertoire will include standard and classical instrumental literature, contemporary pieces—including a composition by Tabor instrumental director Daniel Baldwin—and some simply entertaining music.
This concert will be the final performance of the band’s spring tour, which will have included stops in Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.
This concert series was Baldwin’s first at Tabor.
“I have a wonderful band and we are making great progress,” Baldwin said. “The band is doing a terrific job.”
The symphonic band includes wind instruments and percussion. It performs annually for the college during the Christmas season, commencement and at several concerts throughout the year.
“We are making strides to really push (the band) and have it play a larger role in the music department,” he said.
The instrumentalists also serve as the members of Tabor’s pep band for home football and basketball games, and the band was selected by the KCAC in March to serve as the official pep band at the conference’s basketball championship games, hosted at Hartman Arena in Park City, Kan.
