Don't forget this coming Sunday June 7th is the Interlactic Brass concert performed by the Milwaukee Festival Brass. The concert begins at 3 PM in the Schwan Concert Hall on the campus of Wisconsin Lutheran College. See you there.
Now on to the summer season! The first of the summer concerts is performed by the Shorewood Concert Band under the direction of Dr. Pat Backhaus (who also leads the Milwaukee Festival Brass). It will be held in Shorewood's Atwater Park, corner of Capitol Drive and Lake Drive on Saturday June 13 at 4:30. This will be in conjunction with the Shorewood Mens Club Chicken Dinner fundraiser. Besides a nice concert from Shorewood Band, you can also enjoy a barbecue chicken dinner from Rupena's. (Very good, take my word for it.)
This year Dr. Pat's first Shorewood concert is entitled Hands Across the Sea. The band will feature selections from the European Union including March of the Belgian Paratroopers, British Master's Suite and Gustav Holst's First Suite for Military Band. From the US, the band will include Sousa's Hands Across the Sea (of course).
The concert will be great fun and the chicken will be very tasty. No need to cook on June 13th. Enjoy a concert and dinner and help raise funds for an organization that supports the Shorewood Concert Band! Everybody wins!
