ADA — Part of the music included in the wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, as well as a canticle of praise, an English traditional dance and the finale of a symphony featuring the Antiphonal Brass Choirs from Byng and Konawa High Schools, will be performed today in the spring concert of East Central University's Wind Symphony.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Ada First Baptist Church under the direction of Allen Correll, ECU band director.

The freshman, sophomore, junior and senior recipients of the Saied Awards in Instrumental Music will be announced during the concert.

The 65-member wind symphony will open the concert with "Alleluia! Laudamus Te" by Alfred Reed with Paul Rowe as organist.

"Rhosymedre" by Ralph Vaughan Williams is the most popular of three preludes based on Welsh hymn tunes. Sometimes known as "Lovely," it was one of several works performed at the wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles.

The Finale from Sergevich Kalinnikov's "Symphony No. 1 in G minor" will feature the Byng and Konawa Antiphonal Brass Choirs.

The frail Kalinnikov wrote the symphony while recovering his strength after a season as assistant conductor of the Moscow Italian Opera. He died in 1901, two days before his 35th birthday, completing only one other symphony and a few shorter instrumental works.

Students in the brass choirs will be under the direction of Richard Howard, band director at Byng High School, and Donny Longest, band director at Konawa High School.
