Band, wind ensemble to perform April 12 at Majestic Theater

GETTYSBURG, Pa. - Gettysburg College's Symphony Band and Wind Ensemble will perform a spring concert April 12 at the Majestic Theater.

The 8 p.m. program will take place in the Majestic Theater located on Carlisle Street. Under the direction of interim director Trent Hollinger, the band will perform selections from Mennin, Barrett, Williams and Reed and ensemble will perform works by Grainger, Bennett, Lauridsen and Ives. Admission is free, but tickets are required and can be obtained by calling the Majestic Theater Box Office at 337-8200. The Majestic is one block north of Lincoln Square in downtown Gettysburg.

Hollinger has served as director of bands and assistant professor of music at Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Mich. In that role, he made changes to the ensembles' organization, repertoire and recruitment, which lead to a 40 percent increase in participation. Hollinger has presented clinics and workshops for several Western Michigan area junior-high and high school band programs. Hollinger is currently pursuing a doctorate in musical arts in wind conducting at the Peabody Conservatory of Music at Johns Hopkins University.

The Sunderman Conservatory of Music at Gettysburg College combines Gettysburg's superb music tradition and its strengths as one of the nation's leading liberal arts colleges.
