Sounds of music filled the Fine Arts Center Auditorium at the University of Arkansas at Monticello March 8 when the UAM band and ensemble presented its spring concert. Members of the trombone choir and flute quartet also played a musical number.
The band played four different pieces of music which included “Prelude and Fanfare,” “Esprit De Corp,” “First Suite in E Flat,” “Chaconne” and “Honey Boys on Parade.” Before playing the each score, members of the band gave a brief history about the piece.
Throughout the night’s performance various band students were honored with the Kappa Kappa Psi award for outstanding performance. Those students honored included Ben Favor, for brass; Timothy Woods, for woodwind; Ashley Hollaway, for percussion and Kerry Blakemore for KKY brother of the year.
Conductors of the UAM band concert that night included Gary Meggs, Les Pack and Robert Fellows.
