Big news for the Avon Lake High School Band

Real Estate Agent with Howard Hanna - Avon Lake, OH 2006004434

The Avon Lake Symphonic Band is one of four bands from throughout the USA selected to perform at the 4th Annual Percy Grainger Wind Band Festival on March 9th in Chicago’s Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center. The students will rehearse and perform in this famous hall, home of the Chicago Symphony, and participate in a clinic with Colonel Arnald Gabriel, Conductor of the United States Air Force Band (retired).

The Avon Lake Symphonic Band has been rehearsing for several months in preparation for this performance. They will perform John Philip Sousa’s “Circus March” to open their program, followed by Claude T. Smith’s “Incidental Suite”. In tribute to Percy Grainger, the band will play “Children’s March”, subtitled “Over the Hills and Far Away”, composed in 1919. This piece has maintained itself as a musical gem in concert band literature. Dr. John Knight, Oberlin Professor Emeritus of Music Education and Conducting at Oberlin College will serve as guest conductor of the band for this piece. The Symphonic Band will conclude their program with Lauridsen’s “O Magnum Mysterium” and “Arabesque”, written in 2009 by Samuel Hazo.

The Avon Lake Symphonic Band is directed by David Eddleman, in his eighth year teaching instrumental music at Avon Lake High School. He has brought in many instructors and clinicians to work with the 58 piece band including Cleveland Youth Wind Symphony Director Dr. Gary Ciepluch and retired Avon Lake Band Director Harry Pfingsten. Many others have helped the students prepare, including Doug Day, Rich Pokrywka, Tom Tweedle, Geoff Anikienko, Dyanna Seabold, and Gary Adams.

The Symphonic Band is one of several instrumental offerings at Avon Lake High School. There are more than 650 students who participate in instrumental music in the Avon Lake City Schools. The Symphonic Band students have been saving money and raising funds for this trip since last spring so that all expenses are total funded by the students and the Avon Lake Band Aids, the program’s parent booster organization. The trip will include a clinic, museum tours, and time to visit Chicago attractions such as Navy Pier and Willis Tower.
