Conductor and professor Raymond Burkhart will be conducting the College of the Canyons Symphonic Band’s first concert, aptly titled “Firsts,” at 8 p.m. Monday in the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center lobby, located on the college’s Valencia campus.

The concert is free and open to the public.

“I’m thrilled to be leading the new COC Symphonic Band as we build from literally one student to a mighty future band that is part of a comprehensive music program and will amplify the Santa Clarita Valley’s important musical resources,” said Burkhart, who is also a composer and musicologist.

Among the pieces to be performed will be several original compositions and arrangements made by Burkhart. To mark the holiday season, the band will close with a Christmas carol.

Burkhart comes to COC with many years of experience conducting professional, collegiate, community and youth ensembles.
