Scot Symphonic Band Concert, Wednesday, March 16, 2015, 7:00pm, Main Sanctuary. The Scot Symphonic Band is composed of 75 student musicians, representing 18 states and virtually all majors offered at The College of Wooster.  These students choose to continue their studies in music, regardless of major and have a passion for performing in small and large ensembles alike.  The student musicians of the Scot Band truly love the camaraderie and the opportunity to perform exciting and challenging music. 

Clad in Dress MacLeod tartan kilts, this colorful musical group from Ohio features a full Concert Band as well as a Bagpipe and Drum Corps.  A Scottish uniform was selected because of the Scottish Presbyterian heritage of the College.

The band’s repertoire is selected from standard band literature and is planned for a variety of tastes.  Concert programs often include at least one traditional march as well as the music of Scotland, giving a nod to the Scottish heritage of the College. The Scot Band tours annually during the College’s Spring Break.  This year’s tour includes concerts in Bellefontaine, OH, Wyoming, OH, Crawfordsville, IN, Kansas City, MO and Dardenne Prairie, MO. 

2015 Tour Program Description:
The Scot Symphonic Band tour program features music of various styles and genres, all representative of substantive literature for the modern wind band.  The contrasting works of young American composer Samuel Hazo, Mountain Thyme and …GO, are typical of his fresh and innovative writing, the first a moving memorial to a life tragically lost too soon, and the second a dynamic tribute to several composers Hazo holds in high regard.  Festivo, with its distinctly British flavor, and the Irish feeling of Kirkpatrick Fanfare fit well with the Scottish heritage of Wooster’s band.  Works by established American composers Robert Jager, Norman Dello Joio, and Henry Fillmore are standards in the band literature ranging from humorous and satirical suites to a standard march.  Jacob Boca, a Senior trumpet major, is featured in Herman Bellstedt’s flashy variations on the once popular Italian song Funiculi, Funicula, and Charles Young’s Tempered Steel is a celebration of human triumph over the many unavoidable hardships and obstacles that we regularly face.  No Scot Band concert would be complete without the music of Scotland, featuring the bagpipers, Scottish drummers, and Highland dancers, including the traditional concluding collaborative rendition of Amazing Grace.

For more information, please contact Denise Rotavera-Krain at 330-263-2048.

Dannion’s book Saved by the Light was a made-for-television movie and was one of the highest ranked of all time.

Dannion invites you to join him in the celebration of life, as he takes you on an adventurous journey through the spiritual wonders of the afterlife. In 1975, after being struck dead by a bolt of lightning, Dannion spent 28 minutes on a guided tour of the other side. During this time, Dannion was infused with the Wisdom the Ages by thirteen beings of light. In the years 1989 and 1997, two more near-death experiences sent Dannion on fantastic voyages through the heavens. As a result, he received an in-depth education on the meaning of conscious living and loving, on both sides of the veil.

Presently, the entire planet finds itself transitioning through a shift in conscious reality; a shift unprecedented in the history of humanity. In order for the quality of our lives to remain intact, there are many important themes and lessons we need to incorporate into our everyday existence. Dannion’s lively and humorous presentation of Seven Lessons from Heaven will teach you how to:
*Remember who you are   *Discover your purpose *Develop greater intuition *Connect with the spirit realm *Prepare for Earth changes
