'Heavy Hitters', theme of Sunday's band concert

Tuesday, July 15, 2003

The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present "Heavy Hitters" this Sunday July 20, at 8 p.m. at the Forest Park Bandshell or Pavilion in case of rain.

The "Heavy Hitters" will include "The Barber of Seville" by Rossini and arranged by Meyrelles and will feature the clarinet section.

American bandmaster/ composer Karl L. King liked to use the phrase "heavy marches" to describe his more difficult works and this week's marches include King's "L.S.U. Tiger Triumph", Harry Alford's "The Purple Carnival", Julius Fucik's "Florentiner March" and Paul Lavalle's "Band of America".

New to the band is "Loch Lomond" by Frank Ticheli which shares the melodies "You Take the High Road" and "Danny Boy".

Additional "Heavy Hitters" include "The Rakes of Mallow" by Leroy Anderson, "Sea Songs" by Ralph Vaughan Williams and "The Impossible Dream" arranged by Erickson.

Just for fun, the BCB will play "A Rhapsody of Reruns" to include twelve old time television classics.

The Jewell march of the week is "Imperial Council" and the Sousa march of the week is "Sound Off".
