Capitol Pride's DC's Different Drummers to perform on the 5th

See below for an event at the Columbia Heights Education Campus (16th and Park) with DC's Different Drummers, Capitol Pride's symphonic band.
D.C.'s Different Drummers, Capitol Pride Symphonic Band Presents: Architects of Music
The Capitol Pride Symphonic Band is proud to present our Fall Concert, Architects of Music. The event will be held on Saturday, November 5, at 8pm at the Columbia Heights Education Campus Auditorium (CHEC), located at 3101 16th Street NW, Washington, D.C 
Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for students and seniors, and will be available at the door. For more information or to purchase tickets in advance, call 202-403-3669 or visit our, online box office. Please note, tickets purchased online include a small processing fee. Please contact president@dcdd.org with any questions. 
This program reflects composers that exemplify architectural structures in their compositions. We will also feature guest emcee Martin Moeller, author of AIA Guide to the Architecture of Washington, D.C., and guest conductor Nancy Plantinga.
The concert will begin with J.S. Bach's "Fugue a la Gigue," arranged by Gustav Holst. Bach was the master of the fugue and constructed a clear foundation upon which other composers built. Our next selection, Eric Whitacre's “Sleep,” highlights our guest conductor, who is a personal music mentor to our own conductor, Joe Bello. Nancy was instrumental in Joe's musical journey, serving as his first "Architect of Music."
Closing the program will be Ottorino Respighi's stirring composition "The Pines of Rome." Respighi was an Italian composer and musicologist whose music reflects the 16th and 17th centuries. This work is most commonly known for its appearance in Disney's Fantasia 2000.
We look forward to seeing you at 8pm on November 5, at the CHEC, to journey through D.C.'s Different Drummers' Architects of Music.
