DANCE HALL MEETS CONCERT HALL: BEAUSOLEIL TO PERFORM WITH UL LAFAYETTE WIND ENSEMBLE
 
UL Lafayette's School of Music will be hosting its annual Homecoming Concert featuring the Wind Ensemble on Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Angelle Hall.

This year’s concert promises extra excitement as Grammy-winning Cajun band BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet collaborates with the ensemble to present “Lights! Cajuns! Action!”

The ensemble will open with “Lights,” which includes Ron Nelson’s “Fanfare for the Hour of Sunrise” and David Maslanka’s “Golden Light- A Celebration Piece.”

The next segment, “Cajuns,” features two movements from Frank Ticheli’s “Cajun Folk Songs.”

" Action" consists of Walter Piston’s “Tunbridge Fair” and Paul Hart’s “Silver Screen.”

In the final segment of the concert, the dance hall will meet the concert hall as BeauSoleil and front man, Michael Doucet take center stage. They will perform an exciting set of Cajun songs with symphonic settings with the Wind Ensemble, arranged by Danny Devillier.

The songs include “Chanson pour Tommy,” “Je M’endors,” and “Zydeco Gris-Gris.” The band BeauSoleil has a way of taking traditional music and making it into something all their own. This ingenuity along with Devillier’s settings for the wind ensemble will unite in an unforgettable collaboration.

Admission is free to all and the event is open to the public. For more information, call the UL Lafayette School of Music at 482-6016 or visit www.arts.louisiana.edu.
