This Symphonic Band program commemorates composer David Maslanka, who died in August. His wind band compositions frequently reference Bach chorales. Opening with a transcription of Bach’s Fantasia in G and continuing with Samuel Barber’s Mutations from Bach for brass, the program concludes with Maslanka’s stunning Traveler.
