Lone Star College-Montgomery Symphonic Band Presents Folk Music Across the Globe

Lone Star College-Montgomery Symphonic Band will perform a free concert on Thursday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m. on the mainstage theatre, Building D. The concert includes the works of John Philip Sousa’s perennial march, The Black Horse Troop, and The Battle Hymn of the Republic by William Steffe and arrangement by Dragon.

“Whether or not we realize it, we have all felt the effects of folk music,” stated Kris Chapman, director of bands at LSC-Montgomery. “When a tune instills in us a sense of pride in our country or reminds us of a particular time or place with fondness, we are experiencing the wonder that is folk music. People all over the world experience the same sensations when hearing music native to their culture. The concert will explore music from some of these diverse cultures.”

The Symphonic Band will perform great folk music from around the world exploring its importance to each country and its influence on modern music. The night will be filled with beautifully flowing melodies and up-beat rhythms.
