“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.
