Most Americans know the music of Henry Mancini, including his renowned “Pink Panther” theme, but fewer know the composers Clare Grundman and John Edmondson, though they each wrote prolifically for band. All three are among the composers to be featured in the December concert of the New Horizons Band, conducted by John Schutz. Schutz came to KRWG to talk with Intemezzo host Leora Zeitlin about the concert, which will also include an appearance by the Good Time Singers, conducted by his wife, Diane Schutz.
