The Boston Conservatory Wind Ensemble, Eric Hewitt conductor, presents “Roots” a free concert, Thursday, April 26 at 8 p.m. at The Fenway Center at Northeastern University (77 Saint Stephen St.)

PROGRAM

VAUGHAN-WILLIAMS: Folk Song Suite
VAUGHAN-WILLIAMS: Flourish for Wind Band
HOLST: Second Suite in F for Military Band
HOLST: Sommerset Rhapsody
GRAINGER: Lincolnshire Posey

According to Hewitt, "The lyrical aspects of the music of Holst, Vaughn-Williams, and Grainger stem from folk songs whose origin is of the British Isles. The evening will celebrate many musical themes - several will be heard in at least three different works. Combined with Britain's tradition of Brass and Military Bands, these ubiquitous melodies endear this beautiful music to musicians and listeners. It promises to be a very pleasing evening, with a few shocking sonic achievements."
