"When Words Leave Off, Music Begins" by KSC Concert Band

KEENE, N.H., 4/6/10 - The Keene State College Music Department presents the KSC Concert Band in “When Words Leave Off, Music Begins,” the ensemble’s final performance of the season, directed by Dr. James Chesebrough, on Thursday, April 22, 2010, at 7:30 p.m., in the Alumni Recital Hall, Redfern Arts Center on Brickyard Pond.

The program features music from leading composers of the 20th and 21st centuries, including Astor Piazzolla, Charles Ives, John Williams, Samuel Adler, and Frank Ticheli. The evening’s soloists will be Professor Craig Sylvern, performing tenor saxophone on Piazzolla’s Oblivion, and Brian Campbell (class of 2010), performing alto saxophone on the title theme from Catch Me if You Can, a film scored by John Williams.

The program’s title, “When Words Leave Off, Music Begins,” is inspired by the words of German Romantic poet Heinrich Heine. “Music is communication,” writes Dr. Chesebrough, and is “one of the most powerful ways to influence, enhance, and educate people.”

Admission is $10 for the general public and $5 for KSC students, senior citizens, and youth ages 17 and under. Tickets will be available at the door, or call the box office at 603-358-2168.
