The Concert on the Lawn has become a fall tradition on North campus, and the Hodgson Wind Ensemble will present the fifth installment this Friday, Oct. 17 at 12:30 p.m.
Enjoy an hour of good fellowship and fun at this free concert by the Hodgson Wind Ensemble and director of bands Cynthia Johnston Turner!
Begun in 2010, the program includes light classics, patriotic numbers, and beloved marches in the style of old-fashioned band concerts in the park. This year's repertoire includes Glinka's overture to Ruslan & Ludmilla; American classics such as Whistler and His Dog, The Stars & Stripes Forever, 76 Trombones, Circus Bee March, and America, the Beautiful; John WIlliam's famous Olympic Fanfare; Slava! by Leonard Bernstein; and medlies Disney at the Movies, Broadway Spectacular, andSelections from "The Wiz."
The event is free and open to the public—bring your blanket or lawn chair and a picnic lunch!
So much fun - and if you don't believe it, here's a video we made from the 2011 concert. Bring a chair and see you there.
