Jazz, classical, marches all part of the mix for Mesilla Valley Concert Band concert

Feb 26, 2015

Conductor Dr. William Clark says he likes to stretch the musicians of the Mesilla Valley Concert Band, and their March 1st concert includes a wide range of pieces that will do just that. From Tchaikovsky and Holst to contemporary composers Roger Cichy and Tom Dossett, and, as always, a Sousa march, the concert will showcase the many talents of the ensemble, particularly the trombones – who will play Meredith Willson’s “76 Trombones,” transcribed by local trombonist Tom Wildman. Clark came to the KRWG studios to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about the concert.
