Two concerts this week

Normally I draft each week's post about Wednesday or Thursday, and finalize it for posting on Saturday night or Sunday morning. However, this week was messy to say the least. So the post goes up on Sunday night, not long after coming back into town.

Don't forget the only Milwaukee American Legion Band concert of the summer this Tuesday at Humboldt Park beginning at 6:30!

And you won't want to miss the concert on Thursday night at 7:00 PM at Atwater Park in Shorewood. The Shorewood Concert Band under the baton of Maestra Dr. Pat Backhaus will perform another wonderful concert and welcome special guests.

Dr. Pat has a fun concert lined up, including the Radetzky March and a Henry Fillmore trombone favorite Lassus Trombone. The band will also perform Constellations, music dedicated to astronomical wonders, by James Curnow, perfect for a summer band concert on a starry night. And I have it on good authority that Dr. Pat will pull out the march book so that the band can sight read a march or two for your enjoyment...and maybe their stress.

Dr. Pat and the Shorewood Concert Band also welcome special guests Hornucopia, a French Horn quartet. They will perform a hunting horn movement from an original suite composed by quartet member Mike Keegan. They will also perform a fun frippery! If you don't know what a frippery is, you'll just have to come to Atwater Park, corner of Captiol Drive and Lake Drive in Shorewood, and find out! See you on Thursday at 7:00!
