Hagerstown composer Michael Mogensen's composition, "Aerial Fantasy," will be performed Monday, Nov. 6, when the U.S. Air Force Band performs the classical piece at the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, Md.

The Air Force Band commissioned the piece by Mogensen, 33, a 1991 graduate of North Hagerstown High School. The 8 p.m. show is free, but tickets are limited.

Another composition by Mogensen, "Chapter Finl," will have its world premiere at the Strathmore at a concert Sunday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m., when it is performed by the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestra's Philharmonic.

The orchestra commissioned the piece, which will be performed at the last concert led by the orchestra's retiring conductor, Olivia W. Gutoff, Mogensen says. Tickets for the concert on Dec. 10 are $18; $8 for ages 60 and older.
