Concert band sets up Sunday show

Thursday, July 16, 2009

The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present, "Somewhere Over The Band Shell," Sunday, at 8 p.m., at Forest Park, rain or shine.

As the program title suggests, one might expect to hear music from "The Wizard of Oz," in a setting by James Barnes.

Music by John Philip Sousa will include his poke at Prohibition, "People Who Live In Glass Houses," and his marches, "Who's Who in Navy Blue," and "El Capitan."

A number in which it is really tough to tap one's toes to, "Third Suite," by Robert Jager, with its cavalcade of zany meter changes, will also be performed.

A salute to firefighters will include a march by Edwin Franko Goldman, "Third Alarm," complete with siren.

BCB favorites will round out the evening, including "Trooping of the Colors," by Fred Jewell, "Amazing Grace," by Frank Ticheli and the Philip Lang arrangement of "The Music Man."

As a former Brazil Concert Band member, being a member of the band was one of the most memorable times of my life...even when I swallowed a moth during a performance one night...lol.

You look great, Matt! It's nice to see that some things never change in this world. Keep up the good work!

You are carrying on a wonderful tradition. I can think of no other person on the face of this earth to carry on Buzz's tradition. "Smile, darn ya smile" Matt. Congrats Matt and the present day Brazil Concert Band.
