The Symphonic Band has the distinction of being the band program’s top symphonic ensemble. It is under the direction of Tony Falcone, associate director of bands, and will be conducted by Scott Walker, doctoral conducting associate.

Walker currently serves as a graduate teaching assistant for the band area in the Glenn Korff School of Music. He is in his final year of the Doctor of Music Arts in wind band conducting program, studying with Carolyn Barber, director of bands. Walker is an Alabama native and holds a Master of Music degree from Georgia Southern University and Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Alabama.

The Symphonic Band’s Nov. 30 program, “The Experience of Light,” features compositions by David Maslanka, Aaron Perrine, John Mackey and Spanish composer Anton Alcalde.

“The pieces all relate to our understanding of light and will include a collaboration with the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film’s lighting design program, as they provide an enhanced visual experience to this program,” Walker said.

The second half of the program will feature an original composition written to Charlie Chaplin’s silent film, “The Pawnshop.”
