Concert Band to salute fathers June 17

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Matthew S. Huber
The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, invites everyone to bring their fathers to the big show set for June 17, at 8 p.m., at the Forest Park Band Shell or the Pavilion if rain.

"Father's Fantastic Favorites," will offer fathers hits from the "Big Band" era to Broadway peppered with great matches.

Those marches include Sousa's "La Flor De Seville," honoring the city in Spain, where the March King's father, Antonio Sousa, grew up, and "The Bride Elect," from Sousa's musical comedy by the same name.

From the Indianapolis 500 race, the BCB will present, "The Checkered Flag," by former BCB band member Fred Jewell.

Jewell and his bands often performed at the Indianapolis 500 during the 1920s and 1930s, according to his son, Fred Jewell Jr.

Classic "Big Band" hits for fathers will include "Saint Louis Blues," "A String of Pearls," "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," and "Moonlight Serenade."

A stroll with fathers down Times Square will show off "Theme From New York, New York," "Broadway Show Stoppers," and the overtures from both "The King and I," and "Fiddler on the Roof." Both are shows with fatherly stories.
