Cal Poly Open House Concert
Three Cal Poly music ensembles featuring more than 100 of the university’s finest student musicians will perform at this year’s Open House Concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 14, in Harman Hall in the Performing Arts Center.
The Cal Poly Symphony, conducted by David Arrivée, will perform Zoltán Kodály’s Variations on a Hungarian Folksong, “The Peacock.” The symphony will take this colorful piece on the road two weeks later, performing it in the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., as part of the symphony’s first out-of-state tour.
The Wind Ensemble, conducted by Andrew McMahan and Christopher Woodruff, will perform a selection of American masterworks including Percy Grainger’s “Lincolnshire Posy,” Robert Jager’s “Esprit de Corps” and John Mackey’s “Asphalt Cocktail.”
The University Jazz Band I, directed by Paul Rinzler, will perform “House Party,” by Louis Jordan and arranged by Rinzler, “Swingin’ Shepherd Blues,” arranged by Bill Holman, and “What is Hip?” arranged by Mike Tomaro.
The public is invited to visit the campus for Open House and stay late to enjoy an evening of live entertainment.
