Joint band concert scheduled at SFA
October 11, 2011 - Sylvia Bierschenk
Dr. Tamey Anglley, SFA assistant director of bands
Under Anglley's direction, the Symphonic Band will present Frank Ticheli's "Joy Revisited," a piece which the composer calls "an expression of its namesake: simple, unabashed joy."
The band will also perform Derek Bourgeois' "Serenade, Op. 22" and Ralph Satz' arrangement of Aram Kachaturian's "Armenian Dances."
The Wind Symphony, directed by SFA Associate Director of Bands David W. Campo, will open its portion of the program with Richard Saucedo's "Shooting Stars," which prominently features the soprano and alto saxophone.
The group will also play David Gillingham's "Radiant Moonbeams" and David Maslanka's "Heart Songs."
Anglley will guest conduct the Wind Symphony's presentation of William Bolcom's "Graceful Ghost Rag," a piece the composer originally wrote for piano but transcribed for band in 2010.
Prior to her appointment to the SFA faculty, Anglley was director of bands at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa.
She earned her doctoral degree at Texas Tech University, where she worked with the Goin' Band from Raiderland, and the basketball pep bands. She earned her master's and bachelor's degrees at Oklahoma State University.
In addition to conducting the Symphonic Band at SFA, Anglley will conduct the basketball pep bands and teach undergraduate instrumental conducting.
