Indiana Wind Symphony Concert, Mar. 28, 2015

The Indiana Wind Symphony (IWS) helps you discover the inspirational beauty of works inspired by hymns on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 7:30 pm, at the Carmel Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts, 1 Center Green, Carmel, Indiana.
The IWS March concert will be an inspirational one. Hymns, written to inspire the faithful, have often also served to inspire the composition of more complex works of music. The music to be performed will feature famous and a few not so famous hymn tunes.
“Eternal Father, Strong to Save” is an exciting work with brass fanfares and a wonderful fugue on the theme by Claude T. Smith that uses the United State Navy hymn, played by the horn quartet.
In Pride and Glory John Philip Sousa, the March King, uses “Onward Christian Soldiers” as the trio theme in this march.
Mannin Veen is the finale to the concert and the masterpiece of the early 20th century British composer Haydn Wood. This piece is a brilliant tribute to his home, the Isle of Man, and uses both Manx folktunes and hymns.
Sam Rhinesmith, who served as Director of Bands at North Central High School for three decades, will be presented with the 2015 James B. Calvert Outstanding Music Educator Award as part of this special evening.
