BCB set for Sunday concert

Monday, July 5, 2010

Matt Huber
The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present "Back Home Again In Forest Park," after spending the week in Memphis, Tenn., where the BCB performs at Graceland and the W.C. Handy Park on Beale Street.

The concert will take place Sunday, at 8 p.m., at the Forest Park bandshell or pavilion.

An eclectic program of old favorites will be played.

The oldest classic this week is based on themes by Ludwig von Beethoven and arranged by Skornicka, titled "Overture Eroica."

Traditional American standards such as "Shenandoah," "Trumpets Ole," and Anderson's "Blue Tango," are scheduled.

Another oldie but goody is "Themes From Offenbach," based on the 19th century Parisian composer's best-known works.

From the World War II era of Big Band, the BCB will offer "A Tribute to Glenn Miller," with several of his best-known hits.

Marches for the week pop up like thunderstorms from the Midwest with the fiery Spanish march, "La Roquina," which was actually written by Iowan William Green of the Karl King Band, "The Billboard March," by John Klohr of Cincinnati, Indiana March King Fred Jewell's "The Iowa Brigade," "Men of Ohio," by Henry Fillmore and John Philip Sousa's "The Belle of Chicago."
