Election Day

Friday, Nov 04, 2016, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

Election Day is coming. It is only appropriate that the band celebrate this quadrennial occasion with music fit for the event – without getting too political. There’s presidential music (a polonaise) and congress music (marches); donkey music (a serenade) and elephant music (a walk or a parade); music for places our elected officials have to deal with like Afghanistan and Baghdad. Before we elect our destiny, perhaps we should hear Verdi’s La Forza Del Destino (The Force of Destiny). Please join us for all this and more – some definitely light-hearted – as we musically prepare for this year’s Election Day.
