Special News

It isn't often that I post news during the week, but I just received this news and it cannot wait!

A free concert is set for Wednesday March 16 at 7PM by the US Air Force Band of Mid-America Concert Band, to be held at the Marcus Center.  No tickets will be required; all you need to do is show up and enjoy the performance. 

The press release from the band gives this summary:

The Concert Band is a group of 45 professional musicians whose music inspires patriotism, connects communities with military service members and honors our country's veterans.
During a concert, you are just as likely to hear the music of contemporary composers as you would the familiar sounds of John Phillip Sousa or Maj. Glenn Miller. The band also features vocal soloists singing a wide variety of popular, classical and patriotic selections.
The concert will be enjoyable and appropriate for all ages.  These concerts are great for students who are just starting out and sometimes struggling with their instruments.  They hear a group like this perform, and they become more enthusiastic, practice harder, and then they improve.  Concerts like this can start that ball rolling for students.  And the best part is that the parents will enjoy the evening as well, with no dent to the wallet!
Mark your calendar.  You don't want to miss this one.
