Hunsicker will perform two selections by contemporary American composers, "Proclamation," a dramatic essay by Ernest Blochand and "The Hollow Men," by Vincent Persichetti, which is based on a poem by T.S. Eliot. Hunsicker also serves as Principal Trumpet of the Wichita Symphony Orchestra.
The orchestra will also present Beethoven's Sixth Symphony ("Pastoral"), a dramatic work distinguished by its five-movement structure and vivid content.
