The University of the Philippines (UP) College of Music closes its second semester Academic Year 2012-2013 season of faculty concerts with the University of the Philippines Symphonic Band in a major concert, titled "Sound Images," on Thursday, March 21.

The program will be highlighted with two major works, first of which is “Give Us This Day” by David Maslanka. The title of the piece comes from the Christian "Lord’s Prayer" but is inspired by Buddhist thought. It is subtitled “Short Symphony for Wind Ensemble” because it is not programmatic; it is a full blown symphonic structure in only two movements. The second long work is the “Ghost Train Trilogy” by Eric Whitacre, a composer who is quickly becoming one of the brightest stars in the American music scene. This three-movement work is based on the legend of the "Ghost Train," a supernatural machine that roars out deep in the night through forgotten towns and empty canyons. The image forms part of American folklore.

Eight more works complete the evening's program, which includes “One for All” by Robert Litton, “Shooting Stars” by Richard Saucedo, “El Bosque Magico” by Ferrer Ferran, “Man in the Ice” by Otto Schwarz, “Liberty Fanfare” by John Willams, “Down in the Deep Cellar” by F. Kroepsch, “Noisy Wheels of Joy” by Eric Whitacre and “Parkour” by Samuel Hazo. The pieces are descriptive in nature and thus the concert promises to be an exciting evening as UP Symphonic Band "paints" the images into the sound canvas.

Admission ticket is Php 200; students with valid IDs are entitled to 50 percent discount and senior citizens, 20%.
