         man composer Moritz Eggert will be Wednesday, March 16,
         when the Cal State San Bernardino Symphonic Band performs
in the university’s Recital Hall.
  Supported through a grant from the Alemannia Music Foundation and
funds from the German Consulate of Los Angeles, the presentation of
“Progression and Three Marches from Processional” begins at 7:30 p.m.
  The often controversial composer, Moritz Eggert, wrote “Processional”

  The program at CSUSB also will feature a number of works by Amer-
ican composers, including works by Pulitzer Prize-winners Joan Tower
and David Del Tredici.
  Moritz Eggert, born in 1965, has attracted increasing interest as a writer
of engaging, theatrical and approachable music. Educated at the
Hochschule für Musik in Munich and the Guildhall School in Music in
London, he has won a number of prominent international awards for his
music. His “soccer oratorio” for the Ruhrtriennale 2005 and his music
for the opening ceremonies of the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany
experienced widespread media coverage in German and foreign media.
  Tickets for the concert are $10 for general admission, $8 for senior cit-
izens and $5 for CSUSB students with I.D. Parking is $5 per vehicle. For
