Concert Band to perform July 29

Sunday, July 22, 2012

Brazil Concert Band Director Matthew S. Huber
The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present Sunday Night At The Movies July 29, at 8 p.m., at the Forest Park Band Shell rain or shine.

The popular movie music theme includes two medleys of cinema favorites, "Hollywood Milestones," by Higgins, and "Salute To The Cinema," by Strommen.

Marches weave themselves into a host of movies and the brand will include Hall's "The Tenth Regiment," from the British movie, "Brassed Off," about a coal mining community's brass band.

Alford's World War I march, "Colonel Bogey," ranks as one of Hollywood's most endearing theme as it was whistled by British soldiers who are captives of the Japanese during World War II.

Also from World War II, "The March From Patton," and "Tara's Theme," from "Gone With The Wind," with its Civil War setting.

The "March From 1941," by John Williams comes from the movie about life in California just days after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The late Henry Mancini's music is back by popular demand in Brubaker's "Mancini Magic," along with Williams' classics, "Star Wars Medley," and "Superman."

Disney's "Mary Poppins," arranged by Sherman, and Barnes' "The Wizard Of Oz," will also drop in for a musical visit from Tinsel Town.
