USU Alumni Band continues summer concert series

LOGAN — Utah State University’s Alumni Band continues its series of summer performances with another outdoor concert Sunday, July 19, on the Quad just east of Old Main at 7 p.m. The traditional park band concert is free and open to the public.”We were very happy with the audience the turned out for our Independence Day concert, and are looking forward to another nice afternoon and evening on the Quad,” said band director Nicholas Morrison. “This program will include lots of marches, dance music and music from the Broadway stage. I’d like to especially encourage families to come — there’s no age restriction, and even the family dog (on a leash) is welcome — to share a special evening with the Utah State University Summer Alumni Band.”For this week’s concert, the band brings back the intermission feature segment of the program with the USU Alumni Band Clarinet Quartet. Under the direction of the Alumni Band’s principal clarinetist Cheryl Ann Blackley, the ensemble will perform several selections, including “When I’m Sixty-Four” and “The Pink Panther.” Other quartet members include clarinetist Eric Hatch, a current USU student and Brittany Settles, bass clarinetist and band librarian.Other works on the program include “Sea Songs” by British composer Vaughan Williams, “Tango for Band” by Glen Osser and “The March from ‘1941’” by John Williams.Audience members should note that due to the recent landslides, all USU parking lots south of 400 North are currently closed. In case of inclement weather, the performance will take place in the Kent Concert Hall of the Chase Fine Arts Center (approximately 1110 E. 610 North, Logan).The USU Alumni Band is a performance group sponsored by the Department of Music and the Caine School of the Arts at USU.
