More Information


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.*
