The Mesilla Valley Concert Band’s final concert of the year will include two works by Alfred Reed, an American composer whom conductor William Clark describes as “a genius with the wind band – everything he does is well-done.” The concert will also feature saxophone soloist Nathaniel Berman in the Concerto for Alta Saxophone by Robert Mucynski, along with works by Aaron Copland, John Philip Sousa and a salute to some of the great jazz tunes of the mid-20th century. Clark came by the KRWG studios to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about the composers and the concert.
