The U.S. Coast Guard Band presents Academy Concert: "D’un matin de printemps"
2pm EST, May 8, 2022
CDR Adam Williamson, director
The concert program takes its title from French composer Lili Boulanger’s work meaning “Of a Spring Morning,” an evocative Impressionist work of both propulsive energy and surpassing delicacy that is exemplary of the masterful use of wind instrument color typical of French composers of the time. Also on the program is Percy Grainger’s jaunty and sentimental “Children’s March: ‘Over the hills and far away,’” American composer Katherine Bergman’s 2016 work “Dream Machine,” American composer Kevin Day’s fiery Cuban impression piece “Havana,” and Aaron Copland’s “The Promise of Living,” conducted by Coast Guard Band trombonist Master Chief Musician Vince Yanovitch in his final Leamy Concert Hall performance after a career spanning over 31 years.
