This final event for the SPARK Festival of the Arts, features the Louisiana premier of The End of the World performance. Composer Michael Schelle will take part in the performance.

The program also includes Schelle’s Invocation as adapted by Wind Ensemble Director William Hochkeppel with winds surrounding the audience on all sides; Music for a Festival by Gordon Jacob; Symphony for Band by Vincent Persichetti, and Rest by Louisiana native, Frank Ticheli.

SPARK honoree Joe Stewart will also be on hand for a multi-media presentation of Henry Brant’s Verticals Ascending, inspired by the Rodia Towers of Watts, La. Photographs, set pieces, and movement will be combined with unique spatial music.

There are over 50 students in the ensemble playing over 16 different types of instruments ranging from the bassoon to the euphonium, the clarinet to the tuba, and the piccolo to the trumpet.
