Kalamazoo Concert Band Fall Concert, 'It's About Time,' Is Saturday

Oct 21, 2016

Director Tom Evans

The Kalamazoo Concert Band opens its 55th season on October 22 with a free concert in Chenery Auditorium called It's About Time. In a conversation with Cara Lieurance, director Tom Evans the idea of the program was sparked by reading that on October 22, 1884, the Greenwich Meridian was adopted at the International Meridian Conference, standardizing time zones around the world.

The pieces on the program all refer to time, from Tempus fugit (Time Flies) by James Curnow, Autumn on White Lake by Samuel Hazo, and Early Light by Carolyn Bremer. Full details on the concert are at the Kalamazoo Concert Band website.
