BCB to perform Sunday
The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber will present "The Bird, Buccaneers and Beethoven," Sunday, July 8, at 8 p.m., at the Forest Park Band Shell rain or shine.
The "bird" is recent Indiana State University School of Music graduate Janelle R. Huber, performing "Bird of the Forest" on the piccolo from her senior recital last spring.
Janelle's flute and piccolo profession at ISU is Joyce Wilson. The work, by Albert Franz Doppler, includes a quartet of French horns, Nathan Rainey, Kelley Hall, Yurie Uto and Terry Dean as the hunters in pursuit of the coveted "bird."
Dean teaches music history at ISU.
The "buccaneers" are the "Pirates of the Caribbean" in a delightful Disney medley by Badelt-Ricketts brought back by popular demand.
"Beethoven" is heard in Skornicka's classic band transcription 'Eroica," from the BCB's archival collection.
Early American folk tunes "Songs of Old Kentucky" by Karrick, shades of Frank Sinatra from "Guys and Dolls," by Loesser-Custer, and Disney's "Aladdin," by Menken-Custer will also be on the play list, along with the high kicker "Offenbach," arranged by Johnson.
March lovers will keep the beat to Sousa's "King Cotton," Kenny's "Coat of Arms," Huffine's "Them Basses," and the All-American "National Emblem," by Bagley.
