In this program that marks the centennial of the first world war, the United States Marine Band joins UMSO in an examination of major concert works from the period, including selections from Maurice Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin, Gustav Holst’s The Planets and Charles Ives’s From Hanover Square North, as well as rarely performed works by Edward Elgar and Frank Bridge.

The two ensembles will be joined by vocalists from both the President’s Own and the University of Maryland to explore the conflict through music, poetry and images. Guest curated by University of Maryland musicologist Patrick Warfield, this program is an artistic and intellectual collaboration between two of the capital’s major musical forces.
