Tucson, Arizona-- The PCC Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Mark Nelson, performs an eclectic selection of band pieces in its final fall semester concert. The diverse program begins with the unforgettable “Procession of the Nobles” by Nicholas Rimsky-Korsakov, followed by a rousing rendition of the rarely heard “March of the Women Marines” by Louis Saverino. The concert continues with the band standard “Prelude, Siciliano and Rondo” by Malcom Arnold; then curves into a hip concert band version of “Birdland” by Josef Zawinal, presses on with the melodic “River of Life” by Steven Reineke; and proceeds boldly with the popular “The Pirates of the Caribbean” symphonic suite by Klaus Badlet. As tradition dictates, the band brings in the holiday season with the final selection “Sleigh Ride” by Leroy Anderson. The woodwind, brass, and percussion ensembles are featured throughout the concert.
Pima Community College Center for the Arts is located on the West Campus just west of downtown and I-10 on St. Mary’s Rd, which turns into Anklam Rd. Box office hours are Tuesday-Friday, noon to 5 p.m. and one hour prior to performance.
