Event Details

The VSO’s Woodwind Quintet program salutes our Veterans and Service Members with festive music featuring American music from several traditions.

This free, one-hour concert features marches by John Philip Sousa, a medley of familiar songs from the Gay 90s (that’s 1890!), music from Copland’s feisty “Rodeo,” and probably the best-known example of Ragtime, Joplin’s “The Entertainer.” Rounding out the program will be Hedwige Chretien’s charming Quintette, a transcription of Holst’s beloved First Suite in Eb for military band, and music from the movie “The Pirates of the Caribbean.”

Concerts will be presented outdoors, and in line with COVID-19 guidelines.
