The Denver Concert Band's spring theme features “Suites and Sweets”: suites of music that have thrilled audiences for centuries, and their “sweet” young soloist. Some of the best-known suites for concert band were composed by Gustav Holst. His “Second Suite in F” features beautiful themes from English folk songs, jigs, and marches that get toes tapping, hearts swelling and maybe even elicit a tear or two. The “sweet” part of the concert refers to the outstanding high school musician who wins the band’s annual young artist competition. We are invariably wowed by the winner’s mature musicality and technical prowess! You are invited to join the band for more “sweets” at the winner’s post-concert reception. Come out for fine music by famous composers with a fabulous soloist and the Denver Concert Band.
