Conductor Dr. William Clark says he likes to stretch the musicians of the Mesilla Valley Concert Band, and their March 1st concert includes a wide range of pieces that will do just that. From Tchaikovsky and Holst to contemporary composers Roger Cichy and Tom Dossett, and, as always, a Sousa march, the concert will showcase the many talents of the ensemble, particularly the trombones – who will play Meredith Willson’s “76 Trombones,” transcribed by local trombonist Tom Wildman. Clark came to the KRWG studios to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about the concert.
