ISU concert of ‘Hope and Peace’ to feature eight composers’ music

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State University’s Symphonic Band will perform a concert of “Hope and Peace,” featuring the music of eight composers, at 7:30 p.m. today in Tilson Auditorium. The concert will also feature the Indiana State Sycamore Singers.

Doug Keiser, the associate director of bands and conductor of the band, said the concert “pays tribute to all those who lost their lives in acts of violence over the last several years, expresses support for the youth in our community and all those who work to achieve peace, and honors the triumph of the spirit of peace over senseless violent acts.”

Works performed during the first half of the program will include “The Quest for Peace” by Philip Sparke, which pays tribute to the diplomatic efforts of Adlai Stevenson as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, particularly in the Cuban Missile Crisis. “An American Elegy” by Frank Ticheli was written after the Columbine shootings in 1999 as a statement of hope in the face of tragic school shootings.

During the second half of the program, Andrew Boysen Jr.’s “Grant Them Eternal Rest” commemorates the victims and survivors of the 9/11 attack. The ISU Sycamore Singers will be featured in “Homeward Bound” by Marta Keen, commonly used as an anthem for veterans returning from overseas. The final featured piece of the concert will be “1812 Overture” by Peter Tchaikovsky, which celebrates the triumph of peace over conflict.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the School of Music at 812-237-2771.
