Wind Symphony Concert “To Bind the Nation’s Wounds”

The Binghamton University Wind Symphony, directed by Daniel Fabricius, will present “To Bind the Nation’s Wounds” Concert at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 28 in the Osterhout Concert Theater at Binghamton University. Our nation has a fascinating history and this concert matches significant wind band music to our past. The theme is based on the words from the second inaugural address by President Abraham Lincoln. With a little history and a lot of great music, we’ll explore music representing colonial times, the westward expansion, significant historic events, and the spirit of America.
The program will include John Stafford Smith’s “The Star Spangled Banner”, Jerry Bilik’s “American Civil War Fantasy”, James Curnow’s “To Bind the Nation’s Wounds”, Aaron Copland’s “Variations on a Shaker Melody”, John Brown’s “When Johnny Comes Marching Home”, Claude T. Smith’s “Variations on a Revolutionary Hymn” and American Folk Songs “Camptown Races”, “Yellow Rose of Texas” and more!
