Let's Do Lunch

Friday, Feb 13, 2015, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

Ever heard the expression, “Let’s Do Lunch”? It’s frequently a polite brush off. But in this case, it’s a heartfelt invitation to join the band as we consume food – or at least music about food and the places where you can do that. In the Friendly Tavern, In a Persian Market, On the Mall, or on a Teddy Bear’s Picnic, there’s so much food (music) to be had – noodles, oranges, pickles, watermelon, and more. To spice it up, there’s sugar, salt and pepper, and beer. For dessert, we have pie and cake. And there’s music for all that. For a late-winter feast, come on now – Let’s Do Lunch!

Play With the Band

Friday, Mar 27, 2015, 7:30 PM
Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

For this very special concert, we’re extending an invitation to young wind/percussion instrumental students with just a few years playing experience to sit in with the band for a series of rehearsals and a formal concert in the Cary Arts Center Theater – a “Play with the Adult Non-Pros” experience. We especially include those who take private lessons, are home schooled, or attend a school without a formal band. The music includes selections starting off with easier pieces and getting progressively more challenging. Local school music directors and private teachers can “nominate” students they feel are advanced enough to enjoy and grow from this experience. We will also entertain requests from parents with children they feel are ready for such a challenge. Who knows – perhaps some may be invited to participate with the band in future concerts. Come enjoy the talents of young musicians as they Play with the Band.

Numbers will be selected from: **

511 March Opus 69 No. 10 Sergei Prokofiev
512 Fairy Tale and March Sergei Prokofiev
514 Augie's Great Municipal Band John Williams
* Selection requested by band or audience members.
** All selections subject to change.

From the British Empire

Friday, May 15, 2015, 7:30 PM
Sertoma Amphitheate, Bond Park
Cary, NC

It’s time for a trip around the world with music From the British Empire, or at least the British empire of the 19th century. Of course there’s the Pomp and Circumstance of England, appropriate for this graduation time, and an English Folk Song Suite. How about Pryor’s Blue Bells of Scotland or an Irish Tune by Granger? We’ll visit the town of Invercargill in New Zealand and sing a song of Canada. We’ll march with Her Majesty’s Army and Royal Air Force, and perhaps meet Her Majesty, the Queen herself. So much great music from the empire’s composers and so little time to sample it all. But sample it we will. Come with us as we travel with music From the British Empire.

Numbers will be selected from: **

12 British Eighth Zo Elliott
26 Colonel Bogey Kenneth J. Alford
