From Lake Agassiz Concert Band:
The Lake Agassiz Concert Band is pleased to announce their third performance for the 2018-2019 concert season on March 24th at 3:00 pm at the Horizon Middle School Auditorium. We are thrilled to be one of the first groups to perform in this brand new space; one of the finest of its kind in the Fargo Moorhead area.
We are happy to announce our participation to commission James Barnes’s 9th Symphony. We very excited to be a part of a consortium that also includes the University of Kansas, Texas A&M, Brigham Young University, and more. We have some exciting future announcements about this project, and can’t wait to perform this monumental work next season.
“Allegro!” our third concert of this season we will be performing a wide range of music, from exciting dances and overtures by Leonard Bernstein and Alfred Reed, to contemporary works by Julie Giroux and John Mackey. During this concert we will also announce the recipient of the Third Annual Lake Agassiz Concert Band Allegro Grant. This grant provides an area school with a one thousand dollar award that will be used to positively impact their band program.
The Lake Agassiz Concert Band has been active in the Fargo-Moorhead area since 1987. Under the direction of Dr. Monte Grisé, the band, comprised of adult wind and percussion players, performs four free formal concerts each year. Additional community performances include outdoor appearances at the MPR Classical Music Festival and other occasional special concerts. The LACB’s goal is to provide the community with free, outstanding musical performances; to create an artistic outlet for serious wind and percussion performers in the area; and to perform challenging traditional and contemporary wind band music.
