"Lakeway Tribute" to be performed at Walters State
So what kind of music describes our area of Tennessee? The Walters State Community Band will premiere a commissioned piece at 3 pm April 22 in the “Z” Buda Assembly Hall and Museum. Composer Shaun Salem will serve as guest conductor for the debut. The concert will be free. “To be honest, I began writing this by saying ‘Walters State’ over and over in my mind until it became a sound,” Salem said, of the piece is entitled “Lakeway Tribute” . He started with a Celtic sound and tried working in a little “Espirit de Corps.” Then, he saw a need to make the music more accessible for musicians of all instruments. “I know that Davy Crockett’s father had a tavern in Morristown. I wanted to pay tribute to Crockett and his sacrifice at the Alamo. I also know the city has so many festivals and events that bring people together. I also wanted to give it a festive feeling. I also wanted to include the area’s scenic and adventurous side,” the composer said. Walters State Conductor Greg Woodruff said that performing a new piece of music for the first time is a very unique experience for musicians – especially for the members of the community band. He also hopes the new music will inspire potential members to come see what the band is all about. After the performance, the music will be published and offered to other bands.
