Anne Arundel Community College instrumental music groups are packing just about every style of music in three separate concerts this November.
Starting off the concerts is the AACC Symphony Orchestra’s “Bavarian Beasts” at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16. Directed by Anna Binneweg, the orchestra will perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 and Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 1 with guest artist concert pianist Michael Sheppard.
Next, get your toes tapping to Big Band rhythms and the syncopated beat of both classical and improvisational jazz at the concert 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, that features the AACC Big Band directed by Marty Knepp and AACC Small Jazz Ensembles directed by Ian Wardenski.
Finally, put yourself in a rousing patriotic mood in time for the Thanksgiving holiday when the AACC Concert Band and Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Bruce Mansfield, presents an afternoon of band music celebrating America at the 3 p.m. concert Sunday, Nov. 18.
All performances are in the Robert E. Kauffman Theater of the Pascal Center for Performing Arts on the AACC Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway. Tickets are $10 general admission; $7 senior citizens, groups, students and AACC employees and $5 for those with valid AACC student ID.
