The College of Southern Idaho Music Department presents a performance by the CSI Symphonic Band, under the direction of George K. Halsell, on Tuesday, December 5 at 7:30 PM in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. This concert, entitled Secret Santa, features music of the holiday season, including two works where composers have hidden Christmas melodies in larger works.

Dr. Halsell will lead the band as they play Johann Sebastian Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, “Train Ride” from Sergei Prokofiev’s Winter Holiday, the March of the Belgian Parachutists, by Pierre Leemans, and Pavane and March from Francis Poulenc’s Suite Française. The band will also play the overture to Haensel and Gretel by the German composer Engelbert Humperdinck and John Philip Sousa’s Manhattan Beach March.

The featured works on the program are the Suite No. 2 from the French composer Georges Bizet’s incidental music to the play L’Arlésienne (The Girl from Arles), and the Second Suite for Band, by the British composer Gustav Holst.
