Brazil band set for Sunday concert

Friday, August 10, 2007

The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present "A Tribute to Hoagy Carmichael" Sunday at the Forest Park pavilion.

A focal point of the day will be a 750-pound life-size statue of Carmichael by sculptor Michael McAuley.

Former Brazil Times' editor Jim Dressler is credited with securing the traveling exhibit about his fellow Indiana University graduate.

The special edition BCB production will begin at 4 p.m. with entertainment by ensembles from within the band every hour until the conclusion of the event at 9 p.m.

Included are The Saxations Sax Quartet, the CTCC Singers, featuring T.J. Sneddon, Janelle R. Huber and Susan Sneddon, the Fabulous 40s Dance Band and the Norm Hanson Trio.

The BCB will take the stage at 8 p.m. with a program of compositions largely by Indiana composers and about Indiana.

They include Carmichael, Fred Jewell, Charles Duble, William Kiefer, Orion Farrar and Brazil's own J. Gus Davis.

The BCB will perform "Hoagy Carmichael: An American Classic," "Trombone Blues," "Quality-plus," "Bravura," "Greater Indiana," "Indiana State Band," "Kiefer's Special," "Super Service," "On The Banks of the Wabash," "Indiana," "The Brazil Special," "Roses of Memory," "Stardust," "The Wabash Cannonball," and "The Viking March."
