The San Jacinto Community College Steel Band presents River To The Sea
River to the Sea is a multi-movement work for steel band. Water connects all of us. Most cities of the world have formed and grown around a key water source and thrive because of their proximity to water. Houston is a prime example of this.
Musically speaking, the interaction of different cultures and societies from across the globe have been facilitated by this same connection to water. River to the Sea will reflect on this cultural interconnectivity as well as musically depict aspects of what draws us all to water, whether it be for work, survival, recreation, travel, or matters of the spirit.
The music department at San Jacinto Community College regularly produces graduates who are sought after by universities for both their performance and technical skills. Students and faculty perform regularly in recitals, and concerts, and guest artists perform and present workshops on campus frequently.
