Repertoire will include works by Karl King, Aaron Copland and many more. Senior trumpeter Aaron Nolan will be the featured soloist for the Concert Band’s rendition of “The Carnival of Venice.” The Jazz Band will perform “St. Thomas,” a work commissioned for the band by Portland arranger/composer Terry White. This piece is dedicated to senior band member Forest Priestley, who chose the tune and provided input into the arrangement.
