The following HFCC music groups will perform at this year's Spring Band Concert:
- Metropolitan Symphony Band: The largest community college concert band in Michigan, the Symphony Band includes HFCC music students, advanced placement high school students, students from neighboring universities and members of the community.
- Symphonic Wind Ensemble: Known as HFCC’s “instrumental honors group,” the Symphonic Wind Ensemble features the top musicians from other HFCC bands, performing challenging compositions.
HFCC is home to the largest music program of all two-year colleges in Michigan. The musicians in HFCC ensembles represent a cross-section of HFCC’s student body. Music ensembles from HFCC have regularly toured and performed at special events across the country and in Europe.
This year choristers, from the many outstanding choral ensembles at HFCC, will perform with the bands. They will perform a commissioned work entitled “Sing to the Lord a New Song” by Steven Errante and closing the concert with “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” arranged by Peter Wilhousky. The bands will also play music by Robert Russell Bennett, Karl King and other standard symphonic band pieces.
General admission is $10 for adults, $7 for students and senior citizens. Tickets may be purchased at the box office, at the door or by calling 313-943-2354.
