El Segundo Concert Band
A Legendary Concert of Heroic Proportions!
March 3, 2018
Epic Music Concert means a delightful and powerful evening of music our audiences already know and love. A legendary concert of heroic proportions, these Master Composers including Bernard Herrmann, John Williams, Miklos Rozsa, Eric Whitacre, Elmer Bernstein, John Mackey, and Nino Rota have given us memorable themes and background music for classic films and more. In addition, the age-old favorite Carmina Burana will be featured due to its incredible popularity.
Our Composition Competition Winner, Jeremy Bell, was chosen from fourteen entries by composers who submitted their original music to be judged by our jury of experts. ESCB reviewed the original renditions to find the best new piece of music among those hoping to win the $500 prize. The premier performance of the winner’s composition will be played for the first time at the Epic Music concert!
Three times a year, the El Segundo Concert Band puts on concerts, developing a reputation for surprising audiences with the unusual kinds of talent and special capabilities we can assemble from nearby artists and other companies.
The Band rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm
in the El Segundo High School Band room.
