It might be interesting for some forum members to post accounts of community band performances in a single thread. If such a thing has been started previously, please forgive me.
My community band’s most recent concert was last Tuesday night. It was held in the large performance hall of our local university, which is normal. Several hundred people were in attendance. Selections played in the first half of the concert were: Sea Songs by R.V. Williams; Solas Anne by S.R. Hazo; Festivo by V. Nelhybel; Rifton Wed by J. Giroux; and Armenian Dances by A. Reed. Selections played in the second half were: Circus Thrills March by D. Blackwell; Zampa by L.J.F. Herald, The Phantom of the Opera arr. by W. Barker; Star Wars the Phantom Menace arr. by D. Blackwell; and Seventy Six Trombones arr. by L. Anderson.
The concert was well received and the band enjoyed a standing ovation at its conclusion. My personal favorite number was Armenian Dances. I played 2nd trumpet and enjoyed being challenged by its rhythms and other distinctive features. My 88 y/o mother found her favorite in Seventy Six Trombones. Our next concert is scheduled for May 3. In light of increasing COVID19 concerns, I sure hope we get to perform it.
