Concert Band set for Sunday performance

Sunday, July 8, 2012

Janelle Huber will serve as guest conductor for the Brazil Concert Band's Sunday, July 15, performance.
The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present, "A Touch of Tuba and a Touch of Class," Sunday, July 15, at 8 p.m., at Forest Park Band Shell.

Featured soloist Jason Alsip, tuba, will perform the classic Jacob's work, "Tuba Concerto."

Alsip, a 20-year veteran of the Brazil Concert Band, is a graduate of Indiana State University, where he performed in the University Wind Ensemble.

The BCB will present, for the first time, the finale from, "Symphony No. 1 in E Flat," by French composer Camille Saint-Saens.

The work will be conducted by 2012 ISU graduate Janelle R. Huber.

Two classics from Great Britain, "Folk Song Suite," by Vaughan-Williams, and "First Suite in E Flat," by Holst, are standouts and back by popular demand from both the BCB musicians and the audience.

A Sousa song, "I've Made My Plans For The Summer," and his march, "The Corcoran Cadets," are also slated to be performed along with Jewell's "Imperial Council," and Fillmore's comic poke at the classics, "The Poet, Peasant and the Light Cavalryman."
