It's "Lights, Camera, Action!" Sunday, July 18, at 8 p.m., as the Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will take the audience on a musical trip through many of Hollywood's best-known movies.

In case of inclement weather, the show will take place in the Forest Park Pavilion instead of the bandshell.

Several new medleys of movie music were purchased this year, including "Hollywood Milestones," arranged by John Higgins to include "Jaws," "Star Trek," "Chariots of Fire," "Back to the Future," E.T.," "Jurassic Park," "Forrest Gump," and "Apollo 13."

"Salute to the Cinema," by Carl Strommen has such oldies as "Hooray for Hollywood," "Singin' in the Rain," and "As Time Goes By."

"Star Wars -- The Marches," features "The Imperial March," also known as "Darth Vader's Theme," among others in a setting by Jerry Brubaker.

John Williams gets quite a showing not only with "Star Wars," but also "Superman," and "Raiders March," from the Indiana Jones series.

In addition, the BCB will offer, "The Shadow of your Smile," arranged by Ken Whitcomb, the theme from "Rocky," arranged by Wayne Scott, "The Wizard of Oz," arranged by John Barnes, "Selections from Chicago," and "Pirates of the Caribbean," both arranged by Ted Ricketts, and "Colonel Bogey March," by Kenneth Alford, which was heard in "The Bridge on the River Kwai."

Last, but certainly not least, will be "Semper Fidelis," from "The Stars and Stripes Forever," based on the life of John Philip Sousa.
