The band will honor Boy Scouts of all ages as they celebrate the 100th anniversary of scouting with works such as "Trooping of the Colors," by Fred Jewell, "Third Alarm," by Edwin Franko Goldman, "Light Cavalry Overture," by von Suppe and John Philip Sousa's march, "The Boy Scouts of America."
The band also invites all Boy Scouts, past and present, to attend the presentation.
Dr. John Boyd, who recently retired as Director of Bands, professor of music and coordinator of the wind/percussion division at Indiana State University, will guest conduct "First Suite in E Flat for Military Band," by Gustav Holst in a new edition by Boyd's musical colleague, the late Frederick Fennell.
Known throughout the world as a dynamic conductor of wind bands, Boyd marks his third appearance with the Brazil Concert Band, having first guest conducted while the BCB won the Sudler Silver Scroll in 2006. He will conduct "King Cotton" as an encore.
The band will offer the Broadway musical "Guys and Dolls," Disney's "Beauty and the Beast," "El Capitan Waltzes," and new to the band this year, "Kentucky 1800," by Clare Grundman with classic American folk songs "The Promised Land," "Cindy," and "I'm Sad and I'm Lonely."
