Concert band set for weekend performances

Monday, June 16, 2008

The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will continue its Sesquicentennial Celebration this weekend with a doubleheader.

The band will perform in Gosport at noon, during the annual Story and Concert Day.

On Sunday, at 8 p.m., the BCB will be back at Forest Park, rain or shine, with guest artist Kendra Kirby, music director at World Gospel Church, Terre Haute. Her performance was postponed earlier this year due to flooding.

Kirby will sing the overture from "My Fair Lady," from the Robert Russell Bennett arrangement and she will close the evening with "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Sousa marches this week include "Hands Across the Sea," and "The Picadore," along with international music reflecting the European background of the men who established the Brazil Concert Band in 1858.

The play list will feature "March of the Belgian Parachutists," by Leemans/Bourgeois, "Amparito Roca," by Texidor, "The Kilties," by Morris, "Themes from Offenbach," by Johnson, "In Old Portugal," by King, "A Slavic Farewell," by Agapkin/Bourgeois, "Trombrero," by Cofield, and "American Patrol," by Meacham.
