The Bethany Lutheran College Concert Band, directed by Benjamin Faugstad (Assistant Professor of Music), will begin their Spring Break Tour on March 1, 2018, with a 6:30 p.m. concert in Bethany’s Trinity Chapel.
The Band will perform an exciting array of music ranging from the energy-packed: “The Wind Racers” by Jeremy Bell, “Undecim” by Randall Standridge, and “Tribal Quest” by Sean O’Loughlin to the expressive and lyrical: “Hymn for a Child” arranged by James Swearingen, “Afterlife” by Rossano Galante, and “Benediction” by John Stevens. The performances conclude with a couple of well-known tunes: “Jump in the Line,” made popular by Harry Belafonte, and John Williams’ classic, “Jurassic Park.”
After their performance in Mankato, the group will trek 3,700 miles through eight states with stops for concerts in Arizona, Utah, and Wyoming before returning to Mankato. Bethany alumni, friends, and all music lovers are invited to a performance in your area to enjoy the music performed by Bethany’s talented students.
