We are just finishing up the regular season for some community bands while some have completed theirs. And the summer bands have not started up yet. But there is news about one more concert.
The Milwaukee Festival Brass performs "Prime Time Brass", their last concert of the season on Saturday June 7th at 7:30 PM at the United Methodist Church of Whitefish Bay on East Silver Spring Drive. For the brass band fan, the group will perform Stephen Bulla's Canticles in Brass. For the kids (of all ages), Dr. Pat has programmed some Disney Favorites. And the MFB will have two soloists. The first is George Hunhke, who will sing Mack The Knife. Also joining the MFB is trumpeter Andrew Neesley on two big band tunes, Jumpin' at the Woodside, and Stardust. Andrew grew up in Glendale and now is based in New York. He is stopping by his home town before his band tours Italy. Andrew's latest news is that the CD he performed on with the Bobby Sanabria Big Band was nominated for a Grammy. It's great to see a local do so well in the world of music! Don't miss this concert!
The first summer band concert that I am aware of is Saturday June 14th in Shorewood at Atwater Park. The Shorewood Concert Band will entertain in the late afternoon at the Shorewood Men's Club Chicken BBQ dinner. Once I get some details of the music, I'll post it. The Shorewood Band concerts are always a good time. And the chicken is from Rupena's...the best!
If you have schedules for summer bands, post them in a reply and we can all update our calendars. Thanks.
