IWS presents free concert


“Celebration of the Bands” will not be held this year because of the construction in downtown Carmel, Indiana Wind Symphony Conductor Charlie Conrad said.

Conrad, who started the two-day “Celebration of the Bands in 2015,” will instead have one free outdoor concert, called “American Dreams,” conducted by the IWS at 7 p.m. on the Center Green in front of The Palladium in Carmel.

The soloist for the concert is jazz clarinetist Shawn Goodman, who will play a new work by Indianapolis composer Ryan Fraley, “Rhapsody on Cue.”

Among other pieces will be “American Fanfare” by James Stephenson; “Yosemite Autumn” by Mark Camphouse; “Savannah River Holiday” by Ron Nelson; and Kelly Bennette’s “American Revolution Medley.”

The concert will close with “American Dream” by James Beckel.

“He recently finished a 49-year career as principal trombone of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and is a favorite composer of the Indiana Wind Symphony,” Conrad said.
