CLEAR ALL

Sunday, May 3 at 2 p.m. (EDT) - Early scientists across many civilizations believed that all things in the physical world could be connected to one of the four classical elements: earth, water, wind, and fire. Eastern Asian cultures transformed this idea into a belief in the transmission of energy between elements, including wood and metal. This concert, conducted by Lt. Col. Jason K. Fettig, explores the classical elements in classical music, from Igor Stravinsky’s fire to Leonard Bernstein’s water; the wood and metal used in Jennifer Higdon’s virtuosic Percussion Concerto, featuring Master Gunnery Sgt. Christopher Rose; and Darius Milhaud’s depiction of the genesis of the earth itself. These elements are all tied together by the very wind that powers this grand acoustic ensemble called the concert band. This performance, which will be held at the University of Maryland's Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in College Park, is free and no tickets are required. - Sunday, May 3 at 2 p.m. (EDT) - Early scientists across many civilizations believed that all things in the physical world could be connected to one of the four classical elements: earth, water, wind, and fire.
