The round trip from Brazil, Ind., to the nation of Brazil in South America, is a tribute to both Brazils.
Brazil, Ind., is the largest city by that name in the United States and as a result, received the beautiful fountain located at the west entrance to Forest Park in 1956.
In 1998, the Brazil Concert Band performed at the Brazilian Embassy in Washington, D.C.
The BCB will begin and end the Sunday concert with "The Brazil Special," By Davis, and "Pride of Brazil," by Goodman. Both marches were dedicated to the Brazil Concert Band.
The featured overture is "IL Guarany," by Carlo Gomez, based on the Brazilian opera about native Americans in Brazil, South America. The edition was written by Herbert L. Clarke of the Sousa Band.
On the way south, the BCB will offer "San Lorenzo," by Silva, "The Pathfinder of Panama," by Sousa, "Commandanta," by Guentzel, and "Trombrero," by Cofield.
Just for fun, the band's play list will also include "The Music of Disneyland," and "Cartoon Carnival," for children of all ages.
Big band fans will also enjoy "Caravan," arranged by Saucedo and those who go for Westerns will saddle up to "The Cowboys," in a setting by Curnow.
