The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present "The Big Four -- Sousa, Jewell, Fillmore and King," Sunday, June 28, at 8 p.m., at Forest Park, rain or shine.

These four American composers are considered the best in their field with around 3,000 musical compositions altogether. They are a fitting quartet of All-American conductor/composers to feature during the weeklong Independence Day festivities at Forest Park.

John Philip Sousa, originally from Washington, D.C., (1854-1932) will be represented by his "The Gallant Seventh," "The Untitled March," and "The Fairest of the Fair."

Henry Fillmore, originally from Cincinnati, (1881-1956) will sound forth with his arrangement of "The Light Calvary Overture," "The President's March," and "Lassus Trombone."

Karl L. King, originally from Paintersville, Ohio, (1891-1971) favorites will include "The Trombone King," "Kentucky Sunrise," and "The Princess of India."

Music from the Indiana March King Fred Jewell, originally hailing from Worthington, (1875-1936) will feature "Neola Waltz," "The Pumpkin Center Cornet Band," and "At Break of Dawn."

The Brazil Concert Band will also include patriotic selections July 5, at 8 p.m., at Forest Park, and at Gobin Church in Greencastle July 7, at a special time of 7 p.m.

The Jackson Township Community Band will play in Gosport, at noon, as well, July 27.
