General Event Information

Music for Prague, 1968 by Pulitzer prize winning composer Karel Husa, is a graphic aural depiction of the rebellion in Czechoslovakia and the subsequent overwhelming reaction by Soviet Russia. Another great story to be portrayed will be the glory of the West Point Army Academy with the performance of Symphony No. 4 written by Morton Gould. William Walton’s Spitfire Fugue will be played as well as several other important band selections.
