Matthew S. Huber
The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present "Mind The Gap," in its salute to the United Kingdom Sunday, Aug. 21, at 8 p.m., in Forest Park rain or shine.

As travelers to London, England, know, "Mind The Gap," appears on the platforms of the Underground, also known as the Tube, advising riders to watch their step as they board the subway. The motto also appears on a popular London T-shirt.

Director Huber, Melanie Huber and John Huber were also in the UK earlier this summer.

John will be attending the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff, Wales (RWCMD), as a graduate student starting in September, working toward a Master's of Arts in Music Performance.

While in the UK, the Hubers visited Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, the Imperial War Museum, Piccadilly Circus, the RWCMD, Cardiff Castle and St. Fagan's Castle and Grounds.

John is a 2010 graduate of the Indiana State University School of Music with a B.S. in Music. He will perform his audition piece for the RWCMD, "The Carnival of Venice," as transcribed by Sousa Band member Herbert L. Clarke, on the euphonium.

John has studied euphonium with Norman Hanson, Dr. Randy Mitchell, Dr. Alex Lapin and Glen Dimick. He will study with David Childs in Cardiff, Wales.

This week's concert will include "Knightsbridge March," and "The Dam Busters," by Eric Coates, "Royal Air Force March Past," by Davies and Dyson, "Tenth Regiment," by R.B. Hall, "Folk Song Suite," by Vaughan Williams, "Colonel Bogey," by Kenneth Alford, "The Cardiff Giant," by K.L. King, and a pair of marches by John Philip Sousa, "Imperial Edward," and "The Royal Welch Fusiliers."
