News & ReviewsASB Presents Song & Dance
November 23, 2013
On a wintery Saturday in November, the Austin Symphonic Band warmed up the evening with its presentation of Song and Dance. Our guest artists, Nicholas Councilor (Clarinet) and Daniel Frost (Tuba), both Doctoral students of The UT Butler School of Music, performed brilliantly accompanied by ASB.
In addition to the von Weber Clarinet Concerto and Broughton Tuba Concerto, the Song portion of the program included works from Austin composers Donald Grantham (Spangled Heavens) and Steven Bryant (Dusk). After The Slavonic Dances of Dvorak, the evening took on a Latin flair with Danzón No. 2 and Mambo Greats.
The concert was well attended and the audience was enthusiastic and gracious in its response.
