Fox trot on band program

Friday, August 5, 2005

The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present "Peaches And Cream" Sunday, 8 p.m., at the Forest Park Bandshell or Pavilion if rain.

"Peaches and Cream" is a seldom heard fox trot by John Philip Sousa which he wrote for his grand-daughter. The theme also reflects Little Orphan Annie in the musical overture "Annie" including "Tomorrow," "It's The Hard Knock Life," "Maybe" and "I Don't Need Anything But You" all in a setting by John Higgins.

Alto saxophonist Diana Joslin will be featured in "Poet and Peasant" an overture by Franz von Suppe and arranged by Henry Fillmore. Also by Fillmore, his "Man of the Hour."

Just for fun, the BCB will present "The Walking Frog" by Karl L. King and big band classics "Big Spender" by Cy Coleman and "Night Train" by Oscar Washington. Also the beguine, "Tropical Twilight" by Eric Osterling.

March lovers will toe tap to "Olympia Hippodrome" by Russell Alexander, "The American Red Cross" by Louis Panela and "Emblem of Unity" by J.J. Richards.

The overture from "Oliver!" by Lionel Bart in a Norman Leyden arrangement with its "Consider Yourself"," "Where is Love?," "Oom-Pah-Pah" and "I'd Do Anything" will round out this week's unique blend of "Peaches and Cream".
