Ames Municipal Band to perform Heukeshoven piece

“The Elephant and the Fly,” a duet for piccolo and tuba arranged for concert band by SMU music instructor A. Eric Heukeshoven, will be performed by the Ames (Iowa) Municipal Band in the Durham Bandshell on Thursday, July 1, at 8 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public. “The Elephant and the Fly” was originally composed by Henri Kling (1842-1918) and scored for military band. Heukeshoven’s arrangement for modern concert band has been performed by numerous bands across the U.S. including a 1998 performance by the Winona Municipal Band with Janet and Eric Heukeshoven as the soloists.
