The Culver City High School Concert Band will share the stage with the Longmont High School Concert Band this Friday at 7 pm. For the second time in five years, our guests from Longmont, Colorado will visit Los Angeles and spend a day at Culver City High School. The concert program features both ensembles and will conclude with a combined performance of Sousa’s Liberty Bell March.
The CCHS Concert Band will be guest conducted by Longmont’s director, Mr. David Merrill, who will perform Frank Ticheli’s An American Elegy. The work was composed in tribute to the victims and survivors of the attack at Columbine High School in Colorado on April 20, 1999. We have programmed this work to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the tragedy.
