About this Event

In Concert Concerto, the West Point Band showcases the immense talent of not only its own members, but also those of featured West Point cadet soloists in a program that is rife with the sweeping melodies of your favorite Romantic composers. This unique collaboration includes two of the most celebrated concertos for string instruments: the Saint-Saens Cello Concerto No. 1, and Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. Sgt. 1st Class Yalin Chi follows with the tenderly wistful second movement of the Concerto for Piano by award-winning British composer Nigel Hess. The band also gets its chance to shine in Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral by Richard Wagner.
