Upcoming concerts!

Who: The Ohlone Wind Orchestra
What: OWO Spring Concert (Concert Flyer)
When: Sunday, May 8, 2011 at 2pm
Where: The Smith Center on the Ohlone College Campus in Fremont, CA.
Why: The OWO is probably the closest to a professional group I have had the privilege of playing in. The spring concerts are usually the best. And we’re running through a monstrously good transcription of Liszt’s Les Preludes and a smoking euphonium soloist on Boccalari’s Fantasia di Concerto.

Who: The Livermore-Amador Symphony
What: Holst’s The Planets and Dale Wolford (Concert webpage)
When: Saturday, May 14, 2011, at 8 p.m. (prelude talk at 7 p.m.)
Where: The Bankhead Theater in Livermore, CA.
Why: Livermore is a great community symphony and they’re tackling some tough works here and also an interesting saxophone guest soloist.

Who: The Ohlone Community Band
What: OCB Spring Concert (Concert flyer)
When: Wednesday, May 18, 2011 at 7:30PM
Where: The Smith Center on the Ohlone College Campus in Fremont, CA.
Why: We’re playing some fun works you don’t hear often including Slava!, Espana Cani and Relax! that features a Bass Sax. Also, a turn-of-the-century cornet trio feature and other surprises. This is a joint concert with the Ohlone Tuba Ensemble. Word is they have an arrangement of Bohemian Rhapsody in their program.
