The St. Olaf Band, dubbed “one of America’s preeminent bands” by The New Yorker, will perform at DeKaney High School as part of its 2013 national tour. The performance will feature a repertoire that includes two original works. One is from a recent St. Olaf graduate named Jonathan Bartz titled “The Valley of the Dry Bones” and another from the maestro himself, Dr. Tim Mahr, titled “Imagine, If You Will”. Other works include the second movement of Maslanka’s Symphony No. 5, “Savannah River Holiday” by Ron Nelson, Sinfonietta by Leos Janácek, Adoramus te, Chiste by Quirino Gasparini.
Founded in 1891, the St. Olaf Band is an ensemble noted for superb musicianship. Under the leadership of conductor Timothy Mahr, the St. Olaf Band performs the very best compositions and transcriptions for symphonic band, producing an exciting, crowd-pleasing style.
