April 30 at 3:00 p.m., Foothills Performing Arts Center
Andrew Pease and Amy Hoxie, Conductors

Robin Linaberry, Guest Conductor

The centerpiece, Eric Whitacre’s “Godzilla Eats Las Vegas’ (1996) combines imaginary terror with whimsical comedy. 

Cait Nishimura’s “Boreal Pines” (2016) blends the horror of a vast forest fire with the promise of slow, steady recovery. 

Julie Giroux’s “Mystery on Mena Mountain” (1985) is the bittersweet story of children who climb an Ozark mountain to meet the angels, never to be heard of again. 

In “Courage for Winds” (2009), Adrienne Albert records her victory over breast cancer. 

Frank Ticheli’s “Sun Dance” (1977) celebrates the bright joy of a sunwashed day.

The concert also includes traditional music not often programmed—Percy Grainge ‘s “Lads of Wamphray” (1905)) and Alex Lithgow’s “Invercargill March” (1908)—along with Hugh Stuart’s “Three Ayres from Gloucester” (1969), a collection of three English folk songs.
