Monday, June 21, 2010

Matt Huber
The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will continue its summer series with "Memphis Bound Part II," Sunday, June 27, at 8 p.m., at the Forest Park Bandshell, rain or shine.

Sunday starts the Brazil Rotary Club's weeklong celebration of the 4th of July, and the BCB will begin and finish the musical events.

In addition, the band will perform in Greencastle at the Gobin Church on the campus of DePauw University at 7 p.m., June 29.

Both the Greencastle engagement and the 90-minute 4th of July extravaganza in Brazil will feature "the grandest of patriotic favorites," Huber promised.

In Memphis, the band will perform at Elvis' mansion, Graceland, and downtown at historic Beale Street at the W.C. Handy Park.

The musical entourage will be staying at the famous Heartbreak Hotel across from Graceland.

For the concert Sunday, the band will entertain with music to be played in Memphis, including "King Cotton March," by Sousa, "March Gate City," by Weldon, "Lassus Trombone," "The Klaxon," and "Americans We," by Fillmore, "St. Louis Blues March," by Handy, "The Blue and the Gray," by Grundman, and "American Patrol," by Meacham.

Also, "JTCB On Parade," which includes Indiana college songs coupled with "Back Home Again In Indiana," all in a Dixieland beat, and written by former Brazilian Marvin Workman, will be performed.

From here in the Wabash Valley, "Shrine of Liberty," and "Supreme Triumph," both by Fred Jewell, and the featured work for Graceland will include "All Shook Up," which is a medley of Elvis' hits "Jailhouse Rock," "All Shook Up," "Love Me Tender," C'mon Everybody," and "Can't Help Falling In Love," by Ted Ricketts.

The band will also perform, due to popular demand, "Mancini Magic," arranged by Brubaker, a piece the band performed in its second concert this season.
