King University News :: King College Symphonic Band to Perform Spring Concert

The King College Symphonic Band will perform their spring concert on Saturday, April 14 at 8 p.m. in Maclellan Hall on the King College campus in Bristol, Tenn.

Performances will include the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, as well as Charles Carter, Clare Grundman, Samuel R. Hazo, Jack Stamp, Clifton Williams, William Harbinson, Frank Erickson, and David Holsinger.

Included in the repertoire is Abram's Pursuit by Cleveland, Tenn., native and professor of Music for Lee University, David Holsinger. This tour de force, inspired by Genesis 14, musically describes the biblical story of Abram's chase and ultimate defeat of King Cherdolaomer's invading forces which had captured his nephew, Lot.

The band will be under the direction of Lonny Finley, director of bands and instrumental activities at King. Several student conductors from the Instrumental Conducting class will also be featured.

King's Symphonic Band has been in existence for five years and has grown both musically and in number since the Fall of 2007.

Admission to the concert is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend. For more information, contact Lonny Finley at 423.652.6332 or by email at lfinley@king.edu.
