Calvert County Elementary Band

Music Commission Performed in Maryland

Through a grant from the Calvert County Maryland Arts Council, Federico Núñez was commissioned to compose La Vidala de las Aguas for two Calvert County public school bands. Conducted by Marilyn Beeson, the premier performance by the Calvert Elementary Band took place on May 19 at their spring concert in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Several days later, on May 23, Beeson conducted a second performance by the Beach Elementary Band at the Mary Harrison Cultural Arts Center in Owings, MD.
The work was very warmly received by audiences at both venues, and the students, as fourth and fifth graders, were particularly thrilled to be part of a world premiere. In short, Federico’s piece was a big success, and we were very happy to have been able to make the connection between Maryland and Argentina.
