Alexandria, Va. - BANDING TOGETHER: Sunday, Feb. 21 at 2 p.m. EST, NOVA, Alexandria, Va. - All of the works on this creative concert program tell the tale of partnerships; those that are told by the music itself and those that bring it to life on the concert stage. Included are two world premières: internationally lauded conductor and composer Gerard Schwarz’s new transcription of his tone poem Rudolf and Jeanette and a substantial new transcription for band of Percy Grainger’s imaginary ballet The Warriors. CHARACTER PIECES: Sunday, Feb. 28 at 2 p.m. EST, NOVA, Alexandria, Va. - Music has the remarkable ability to portray the character of someone or something. This quality is exemplified in the cornerstone of this program, Gustav Holst’s orchestral suite depicting the astrological character of the planets. Both concerts are free with no tickets required.
