Blue Band to Hold Annual Bandorama Friday

If you haven’t had the chance to hear the Blue Band perform at a football game this year, you’re not out of luck. The Penn State Blue Band as well as the Penn State Symphonic Band will hold their annual Bandorama this Friday night at 7:00 p.m. at Eisenhower Auditorium.

The festivities will begin with a concert by Dennis Glocke’s eighty member symphonic band. Shortly after, “the Blue Band will be joined by the silks, majorettes, featured twirler Matt Freeman (’14 Marketing), and drum major Christopher Siergiej (’14 Computer Science). The performance will include several guests, including The Statesmen and dancers from Penn State’s Ballroom Dance Club. The Blue Band is directed by O. Richard Bundy, assisted by Greg Drane and Carter Biggers,” according to the School of Music.

The Symphonic Band will play Czech composer Julius Fucik’s Florentiner, Ronald Lo Presti’s Elegy for a Young American, and Alfred Reed’s Armenian Dances (Part I). Presti’s piece will be in commemoration of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who was killed fifty years ago on November 22nd.

The Blue Band will follow with a potentially more upbeat performance as it will present some highlights from the 2013 football season.

Tickets are $16 for the general public, $11 for Penn State Students, and $6 for those 18 and under.
