THERE'S some buzz surrounding Julie Husband's Sunday concert, Excursions: From Back to Bolling and Beyond, which includes a musical tribute to some of Manitoba's roadside icons, including the mosquito at Komarno.
Husband, a woodwind specialist, will perform the 18-minute medley as part of a 7 p.m. concert at the Canadian Mennonite University's Laudamus Hall, 500 Shaftesbury Blvd. Tickets, available at McNally Robinson, are $12 advance/ 15 at the door (seniors and students $12/$10).
Excursions, composed by Victor Davies, gives Husband a chance to showcase many instruments in its six parts: The Happy Rock of Gladstone (flute), The Snake of Inwood (alto flute), Sarah the Glenboro Camel (baritone sax), The Mosquito of Komarno (piccolo), The Creature in the Lagoon at Grand Beach (alto flute, flute, baritone sax) and the Lundar Goose flies Over the Blarney Stone of Killarney (piccolo, sax).
The concert also will include the Claude Bolling Suite for Flute and Piano, some jazzed-up Bach and Swingin' Shepherd Blues with Husband backed by pianists Will Bonness and Heidi Peters, bassist Nenad Zdjelar and drummer Tony Cyre.
