HILLSBORO, Kan. – The Tabor College Symphonic Band and Chamber Strings ensemble are preparing for their annual spring tour, taking place April 23-27. The band and strings ensemble will perform at schools and churches in Nebraska and South Dakota. They will be performing at the Henderson Mennonite Brethren Church (1201 11th Street, Henderson, NE) on Friday, April 24 at 7:00 p.m.

Under the direction of Larry Ediger, assistant professor of instrumental music, the theme for this year’s tour is “Symphoniae laudis,” which translated from Latin is “Symphony of Praise.”

“It is our hope and prayer that the music presented by all three ensembles will produce a symphony of praise, which will glorify God and encourage the hearts of listeners,” said Ediger.

The Symphonic Band will perform a wide variety of pieces, including classics such as:  Schuman’s “Chester,” Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “English Folk Song Suite,” Beethoven’s “Prometheus Overture,” Alfred Reed’s “El Camino Real” and Del Borgo’s “Gaelic Rhapsody;” as well as dynamic arrangements of sacred songs such as “God of Our Fathers,” “Be Thou My Vision” and “The King of Love My Shepherd Is.”

The Chamber Strings will perform a variety of traditional and modern classics, including:  Gustav Holst’s “St. Paul’s Suite,” Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis,” Tomaso Albinoni’s “Adagio,” Kirt Mosier’s “America Reel,” Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” and Dvorak’s “Larghetto” from his “Serenade No. 1 for String Orchestra.”

The Symphonic Orchestra—combined band and strings—will present several modern classics:  Aaron Copland’s “Hoe-down from Rodeo” and Percy Grainger’s “Handel in the Strand,” as well as an orchestration of current worship favorite “Revelation Song.”

Join the Tabor College Symphonic Band and Chamber Strings for their Henderson performance at the Henderson MB Church on Friday, April 24 at 7:00 p.m.
