Solano Winds will kick off season with ‘Horizons Unlimited’

FAIRFIELD — Marches from Kenneth J. Alford, Edwin Franko Goldman and John Philip Sousa will be featured in the Solano Winds Community Concert Band’s first show of the 2012-13 season.

The theme  for the Oct. 12 show is “Horizons Unlimited.”

“It’s a theme that fits our musical selections for this program, as well as the positive energy that the band enjoys this season,” wrote Bill Doherty, the group’s director, in an email to the newspaper.

This marks the Solano Winds’ 18th season. With it comes a big change. The group has always performed at the Fairfield Center for Creative Arts. Now, the venue is run by a private foundation, not the city of Fairfield.

“We are very excited to be a resident company in the downtown theater and are thrilled to be part of a community that supports the arts,” Doherty wrote.

The all-volunteer musicians will open the Oct. 12 program with the marches and a overture by Franz von Suppe. Frank Ticheli’s “Loch Lomond” will also be performed. The first half rounds out with “London Suite” by Eric Coates.

The second half includes three medleys. A selection of tunes are “Recorded by Sinatra,” “Italian Rhapsody” and “The Cowboys,” the film score by John Williams.

Doherty sees the first show as the  beginning of an exciting season. In 2013, Solano Winds will perform at the Association of Concert Band’s National Convention in San Ramon. The group was one of only seven chosen through an audition process, earning the opportunity to perform for fellow musicians across the country.

“Throughout the season, we’ll be performing selections that are ultimately headed for this program in April,” Doherty wrote.

Solano Winds has 60 members from eight counties, ranging in age from 17 to 95.
