The New Holland Band presents "Art of the March"

Event Details

Apr 13

The musical genre known as the march can be characterized as having a strong regular rhythm, written for marching, and most frequently performed by military bands. Most of us are familiar with the March King - - John Philip Sousa. However, did you know that some of our greatest classical composers wrote marches for various occasions such as the coronation of a king or larger productions such as the opera?

Saturday, April 13 at 7 p.m. in the chapel at Garden Spot Village, the New Holland Band will take you on a journey through this magnificent art form with selections including Sir William Walton’s Crown Imperial, Julius Fucik’s Entry of the Gladiators, Robert Browne Hall’s March Funebre, and John Williams’ Raider’s March. Hear the stories behind some of your favorite marches including a lesser-known Sousa composition - - Mother Goose March.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. concert can be purchased from the Band’s website at The Garden Spot Village campus is located at 433 South Kinzer Avenue in New Holland, Pennsylvania. Once on campus, follow the signs to the chapel.
