The PCC Lancer Concert Band performed on Friday March 15 at the Sexson Auditorium at 8pm, along with CSU Los Angeles and guest soloist Dr. Jason Kihle, marimba.

The first piece that was performed was called “First Suite in F,” and the songs that were played in this piece were upbeat. The rest of the songs that were followed were Cajun Folk Song, Acrostic Song, Shortcut Home and Tritsch- Tratsch Polka.

“I tried to pick a variety of songs that the students would be able to play,” said Luck.

“It was a nice night and we had a good amount of people showing up for the concert,” said Luck.

The guest for the concert was CSU Los Angeles Wind Ensemble conducted by Dr. Emily Moss along with Dr. Jason Kihle, marimba who flew all the way from Texas.

The last song performed by CSULA was “Stange Humors” which was accompanied by Dr. Jason Kihle.

“I felt great and very relaxed while playing especially since this is the ninth time I’ve played,” said Kihle. “It’s been the second time I’ve played along with a band. It was an excellent piece to play,” said Kihle.

Damiana Lopez, mother of Antonio Lopez who plays the trombone in the band said she really enjoyed the Tritsch- Tratsch Polka. “The song was really fun and upbeat,” said Lopez.

Katherine Feng, hospitality management major,  said her favorite song was “Song of the Bells.” Feng attended the concert due to her Music 21 class. “I had a lot of fun coming to the concert, I’m glad I came,” said Feng.
