Concert band set for weekend performances

Monday, July 28, 2008

The Brazil Concert Band, under the director of Matthew S. Huber, will continue its summer long Sesquicentennial Celebration Sunday at 8 p.m., at Forest Park rain or shine.

This week, the BCB will welcome Jim Church to the podium as he conducts the march, "The Washington Post," by Sousa.

Church was director of the Indiana State University Marching Sycamores and concert ensembles in the early 1970s and before that, he directed the West Vigo High School Band.

A former administrator in the Vigo and Clay County School corporations, he is currently the principal at Greencastle High School.

Scott Miller and Huber were partners in the BCB trombone section for many years beginning more than 40 years ago. Today, Miller teaches band in the Martinsville school district.

He will be a guest Sunday, conducting two marches, "National Emblem," by Bagley, and "Semper Fidelis," by Sousa.

The remainder of the program will include "Man of La Mancha," by Leigh, "Spick and Span," By Jewell, "Lohengrin," by Wagner, "Cabaret," by Kander, and "An Ankansaw Huskin' Bee," by Pryor.

Also, "Ben Buxton's Two-Step," by Barnhouse, "The Black Man," from "Dwellers of the Western World," by Sousa, and "The Untitled March," also by Sousa, will be performed.=
