Dreams, Nightmares, and Fantasy…the next trip in the “Musical Time Travels” journey takes you to the center of the mind and the edges of magic. Eric Whitacre’s “Ghost Train” is one of his first compositions for concert band. Imagine being lost on a dark rainy night and suddenly a fearsome supernatural machine roars out of the night. Denver Concert Band is excited that two outstanding professors from the Lamont School of Music at DU will join them for “Ghost Train.” Art Bouton is well known as the leader of the Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra and Dave Hanson, a winner of the Duke Ellington Scholarship, has arranged for Paul Winter and performed extensively in the USA and beyond. The soloists will lead you through eerie sounds and driving rhythms that beautifully capture the supernatural spirit and the essence of a steaming locomotive. If you have a taste for the supernatural or you just want to hear outstanding artists, join the DCB for “Beasts of Legend and Lore.”
The Denver Concert Band will begin their 57th year of performances in the fall of 2018. A 90 piece adult community band of volunteer musicians; they perform year around in the Denver Metro Area and throughout Colorado. Known for their rich sound and delightful variety of music, there is something for everyone in their performances. In recent years the DCB has collaborated with outstanding soloists and ensembles including the Queen City Jazz Band and the Navy Band Northwest. Their summer pops concert season in 2018 was well received and they enjoyed playing a concert at Denver’s new Levitt Pavilion. The DCB enjoys presenting performances in the Lone Tree Arts Center and they're proud of their heritage as one of Colorado’s premier community concert bands.
