The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present "Hogwarts To Star Dust," Sunday, July 24, at 8 p.m., in Forest Park, rain or shine.

John Williams composed the music for the Harry Potter movies and the BCB will perform several of the best-known themes in an arrangement by Robert Smith.

Paul Yoder takes Hoagy Carmichael's "Star Dust," in an aire and variations style dating back well more than 70 years.

Marches for the week are "March of the Women Marines," written in World War II by Louis Saverino of the President's Own Marine Band, "Sir Henry," by Karl L. King, "Rival Rovers," by Russell Alexander, and "The Circumnavigators Club," by John Philip Sousa.

The BCB will perform Irving Berlin's song, "Marie," along with Broadway's "Gypsy," by Jule Styne with "Everything's Coming Up Roses," and "Together Wherever We Go."

Frank Tichelli's band version of Shaker music includes the Shaker's most famous song, "Simple Gifts."

From the pen of Jerry Bilik, the BCB will continue the American Civil War Sesquicentennial with "American Civil War Fantasy."
