Description:

Shawn Vondran, conductor 

2022 marks the 85th anniversary of Percy Grainger’s Lincolnshire Posy, widely considered a cornerstone of the wind band repertoire. The Symphonic Band’s June performance of the work is a celebration of these two factors. The composition is a set of six movements, each developing a folk song Grainger collected on Edison wax cylinders while exploring various regions of England. Viet Cuong’s new work for chamber ensemble was inspired by Pablo Picasso’s 1954 work Bull, a series of ten lithographs. The composer explains, “The first lithograph is a fully formed bull that, over its next two iterations, increases in opacity and detail. Then, over the next eight panels, layers are gradually peeled away to reveal just the essence of the bull.”
