The concert calendar is finalized for the Wauwatosa Community Band. The band rehearses and performs at Longfellow Middle School in Wauwatosa, at the corner of 76th and North Avenue. The next concert is the annual Halloween Kids Concert on Tuesday October 30th at 7 PM. This concert will be in the school cafeteria, as the school theater will be unavailable.
Kids in costume will get free admission to the concert, and that includes all of us older kids! Also, there will be activities and goodies after the concert. These concerts are always fun and full of a variety of music. This year the Halloween concert will include music from the movies and a performance of Peter and the Wolf by Prokofiev. And for us music geeks, the band will perform Von Suppe's Poet and Peasant Overture. It sounds like a great way to spend an evening and get some extra use out of that costume.
Tosa Band (as the members like to refer to it) will also perform a Christmas Concert on December 11, a mid-winter concert on March 19th, and a Spring concert on May 14. More information will be available on this blog as it develops. And you can always check their web site!
