First Forest Park band concert set June 4th

Friday, May 26, 2006

The first program of the summer by the Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, is set for Sunday, June 4th, at 8 p.m.

With the new time change for Indiana, the concerts will not only begin in sunlight but will also end with the sun still shining thus making the concerts more convenient to those who do not like to drive after dark.

In case of rain, the concerts are held in the pavilion.

The Brazil Concert Band will present "Guys, Dolls, Producers and Marches" at the first concert.

Broadwaygoers will enjoy the music from "Guys and Dolls" in colorful lyrics by Loesser/Custer with vocals by BCB musicians T.J. Sneddon and Janelle R. Huber.

The lively tunes from Mel Brook's hysterical Broadway musical "The Producers" will also make their debut at Forest Park.

Show tunes from the late 1800s will be heard in "Gilbert and Sullivan Souffle" by Lang and Force with music from "The Mikado."

Trumpet trio Steve Steppe, Jim Chesterson and Schuyler Brinson will sound off as "Three Little Maids from School." Euphonium Norman Hanson will also be featured.

Clarinetist Alice Greenburg will be spotlighted in von Suppe/Fillmore's classic "Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna."

The Ticheli arrangement of "Amazing Grace" will show off alto saxophonist Diana Joslin.

March lovers will tap toes to "Star Spangled Salute" by Cohan/Barnes, "Shrine of Liberty" by Jewell, "His Honor" by Fillmore, "Boys of the Old Brigade" by Chambers and John Philip Sousa's "National Fencibles."

On June 3, the Jackson Township Community Band will perform on stage at the bluff at Merom, 12:30 p.m.
