Washington - STATE OF MIND: Sunday, April 10 at 2 p.m. (EDT), NOVA, Alexandria, Va. This program emphasizes the very nature of music and its persuasive qualities, illustrating how music holds the power to either depict a state of mind or to alter mood. Each of these selections highlight some mental state, whether it is the pride felt serving as a Marine, the harried and frantic feeling most everyone has experienced at some point, or the meditative mood that Michael Gandolfi’s Flourishes and Meditations can evoke during a performance. The program culminates with Dana Wilson’s Piece of Mind where each movement represents the inner workings of the human mind. The concert will also feature a solo performance by flutist Mei Stone, the 2016 Marine Band Concerto Competition winner. The concert is free and no tickets are required. Free parking is available.
