BCB set for Sunday performance

Monday, June 23, 2008

Rain forced the Brazil Concert Band to perform inside the pavilion at Forest Park Sunday.

In fact, the band has yet to perform in the band shell at the park yet this season.

But director Matthew S. Huber hopes that changes with this weekend's performance.

The band will perform twice this week with a performance at Forest Park Sunday at 8 p.m., and at DePauw University in Greencastle at 7 p.m., July 1.

The Sudler award-winning BCB will continue to celebrate its Sesquicentennial Celebration with programs of patriotic favorites honoring the upcoming Independence Day activities.

From the pen of John Philip Sousa, the band will perform "The Liberty Bell March," "America First," "The Stars and Stripes Forever," and a medley of Sousa favorites by John Bourgeois titled, "Marching Along."

The BCB will salute the American military veteran with "The Battle of Trenton," "Blue and Gray," "Over There!," "Victory at Sea," and "Armed Forces Medley," honoring all veterans of all conflicts.

Virtually all the well known patriotic toe-tappers will be presented in "The Fourth of July," by Cacavas.

Also included in the concert will be "America," Fred Jewell's "E Pluribus Unum," and "America the Beautiful," with "The Star-Spangled Banner" arranged by Sousa opening the performance.

The Jackson Township Community Band, also directed by Huber, will be in a parade in Linton at 10 a.m, July 4.
