Concert Bands of UC Davis

Wednesday, May 29, 2024


Jackson Hall

Students perform with the concert band on stage

Tickets from: $24.00

This concert features music inspired by voices around the Pacific Rim, from California to Australia, Singapore to Russia, Mexico to Canada (to name a few). Included is Eagle Song by Bob Baker, a Squamish Nation (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw) composer in present-day Vancouver, and a Māori lullaby, Hine e Hine originally by Fanny Howie. California composers are represented in two selections: Mondavi Fanfare by Roger Nixon — commissioned for the opening of the Mondavi center in 2003 — and Go California, a march written by Jonathan B. Elkus, who directed the UC Davis bands from 1992 to 2003.
