Appian WayCal Poly Wind Bands Spring Concert: 'Pines'

Saturday, May 20, 2023
7:30 p.m., Performing Arts Center

We celebrate music with our audiences through this final concert of the Cal Poly Bands’ season!

Music can transport the listener to another time, another place through melody, timbre and orchestration. The works presented evoke historic imagery, of spaces near and far.
Composers featured on this program include Viet Cuong, Norman Dello Joio and Karel Husa. The Wind Ensemble will close the program with Ottorino Respighi's massive tone poem "Pines of Rome."
