The talented woodwind, brass and percussion musicians of the San Jose Wind Symphony recreate the busy sounds of spring for their latest buzz-worthy event. Ralph Vaughan Williams' overture to The Wasps is a highlight of the show as is Henry Fillmore's Circus Bee, but you'll also hear a symphonic take on The Beatles, as well as excerpts from Puccini's Madama Butterfly. Music and artistic director Dr. Edward C. Harris leads this acclaimed concert band, now in its 56th season. Learn More
The theme of the Wind Symphony’s season is “America the Beautiful.” Each concert explores a different aspect of America’s rich musical heritage. The Beat Goes On takes concertgoers on a rhythmic journey through the American musical landscape, from the gospel-inspired American Hymnsong Suite by Dawyne Milburn to the Civil War battlefields of Morton Gould’s American Salute.
Our guest artist for the afternoon is Galen Lemmon, principal percussionist with Symphony Silicon Valley. Mr. Lemmon will perform Gary Ziek’s Concerto for Percussion Solo and Wind Ensemble, showcasing his formidable talents on marimba, vibraphone, bells and a battery of drums and tom-toms.
