The Hodgson Wind Ensemble welcomes guest composer Omar Thomas for his uplifting, hand clappin’, foot stompin’, “come Sunday,” music that promises to get you on your feet!  You won’t believe this piece.  Like nothing you’ve heard before and you’ll want to hear it again and again.  Also on the program is David Maslanka’s heart-stopping Symphony No. 4 and Donald Grantham’s J’ai ete au bal (I went to a dance).  A peruvian Fanfare opens the evening with revelry and contagious dance rhythms.
