Band to present 'Grand Finale'

Tuesday, August 19, 2003

The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present "Grand Finale 2003" at a special time of 7:30 p.m. Sunday complete with intermission.

Director Huber exclaimed this year's band to be, "one of the finest on record with a brilliant ability to deliver the best of concert band literature with the highest of precision and accuracy".

This week's finale won't disappoint with the "Overture 1812" arranged by M. L. Lake, "Crimson Petal Waltz" by Jewell, "Rise of the Firebird" by Reineke, "Loch Lomond" and "Shenandoah" both by Ticheli, "America, the Beautiful" arranged by Walters, "Gershwin" arranged by Bennett and "Sunny Spain" by King.

March enthusiasts will tap their toes to "The Klaxon" by Fillmore and marches by Sousa to include "The Gallant Seventh", "The Black Horse Troop", "The Stars and Stripes Forever" and a never-before-heard Sousa march, just secured by Director Huber, entitled "Homeward Bound".

Soloists will feature trombonist Norman Hanson in Pryor's "Thoughts of Love" and "O Dry Those Tears" arranged by Clark. Joe Dierdorf will sing "The Impossible Dream" arranged by Erickson.

The BCB's very first CD, "The Jewell of the Wabash" will be available for purchase. The band's fans will next get to enjoy the music at the Terre Haute Scottish Rite Nov. 23.
