Col. Jason K. Fettig, conducting
Released on the Marine Band’s latest recording album “Monuments,” concertgoers will have their first opportunity to hear Jim Stephenson’s entire Wooden Dimes: Ballet for Wind Ensemble, in person. Like the ballet it was originally written for, the piece is influenced by music of the 1920s. The concert also revisits Michael Gandolfi’s classical Spanish guitar-inspired Flourishes and Meditations on a Renaissance Theme which was also commissioned by the Marine Band, and the namesake piece on another album released by “The President’s Own” in 2011. Additionally, the winner of the 2023 Concerto Competition for High School Musicians (to be announced Feb. 11) will give their debut performance live on stage with the Marine Band.
