SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music will present a free concert featuring the Crane Symphonic Band and the Crane Concert Band at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the Helen M. Hosmer Concert Hall.

The Crane Symphonic Band will open the concert with Percy Grainger’s “Children’s March,” a classic for winds. Ensemble members will sing refrains in harmony.

The symphonic band also will perform “Gloriosa,” by Japanese composer Yasuhide Ito, a compelling merging of East and West in music, and “George Washington Bridge,” one of the most enduring works of William Schuman, the “dean of American composers.”

The Crane Concert Band will begin its performance with Vincent Persichetti’s “Pageant,” a symphonic overture with a haunting opening, followed by an energetic “parade.” Grainger’s “Blithe is followed by Gustav Holst’s “Fugue a la Gigue,” an adaptation of a Bach organ fugue.

The concert will conclude with David Maslanka’s short symphony for band, “Give Us This Day.”
