Community Band spring concert set March 21


CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County Community Band will present their annual spring concert on Thursday, March 21, at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of Stone Memorial High School in Crossville. Admission is free and open to the public.

This concert has no specific theme for the music chosen, but is sure to please an audience of all ages. You can expect to enjoy the music of Duke Ellington, John Denver, George and Ira Gershwin and of course fantastic marches. 

The opening selection “Carnegie Anthem” by William Owen was chosen to honor conductor Brian Bacon. He will be making his Carnegie Hall conducting debut as part of the MidAmerica Productions Choral Concert Series in May. Mr. Bacon will be conducting a 35-piece orchestra, the New England Symphonic Ensemble, along with several choirs including the Festival Chorale of Fairfield Glade, Roane State Community Concert Choir, New Orleans Children’s Choir and the Freeport High School Select Chorale. 

Other wonderful selections to be included in this concert include Frank Ticheli’s “Shenandoah” and some new marches in the concert band repertoire: “Camp Emery Band March” and “Manhattan Beach March.”

Don’t miss this wonderful evening of music! And best of all it is free! Please contact the Cumberland County Community Band President, Harry Price, for more information at 287-0234.
