Dear Foothill Band Families,
The Foothill High School Wind Symphony was scheduled to premiere a new composition, written specifically for them, at the 2020 Clark County School District Advanced Band Festival on Friday, March 13, 2020. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the performance was cancelled and March 13th would be the last day that the students were allowed on campus together.
Flight of Falcons was commissioned by John Tucker and written by UNLV composer, Anthony LaBounty, for the Foothill Wind Symphony. The piece received its world premiere in the L’Eglise de la Madeleine in Paris, France on June 4, 2019 while the band was representing the United States in the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day landings of World War II.
As a result of the cancellation of the March 13th American premiere, the band has created a virtual concert experience. Members of the band have recorded audio and video of themselves performing the music at home with a click track and a video of Foothill Band Director, Travis Pardee, conducting. These audio and video Oiles have been synced together to create a stunning, virtual-American-premiere of the composition that will be released on New Year’s Eve via YouTube.
Congratulations to the 2020 Foothill High School Marching Band
