Shawn Vondran, conductor 

The Symphonic Band’s second fall-quarter concert opens with Andrew Boss’s á la Machaut, lending a modern touch to thematic material from the works of medieval composer Guillaume de Machaut. Moving forward in music history to the Renaissance, the program continues with Gordon Jacob’s stately, and sprightly, William Byrd Suite. Following Leonard Bernstein’s ode to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, “The BSO Forever,” the performance concludes with Katahj Copley’s bold and brilliant 2022 work DOPE—in the composer’s words, “a gumbo of all the music that inspires and influences me from Thundercat to Kendrick Lamar to Miles Davis to Hiatus Kaiyote and more.”
