More concerts coming up

Here are a few more concerts for your enjoyment:
  • Sunday August 4th at 1:30 in Lions Park in Franklin for the Concord Chamber Orchestra, as their summer concert series continues
  • Sunday August 4th at 7 PM in the Racine Zoo.  The Racine Concert Band welcomes mezzo soprano Allison Hull, who will perform music of Bizet and Irving Berlin.  Ms. Hull has performed for a number of years with the band and has amazed the audiences with her immense voice.  You don't want to miss this one.
  • Thursday August 8th at 6:30 at the Boerner Botanical Gardens in Whitnall Park for the Concord Chamber Orchestra (in case you could not make the concert in Franklin).
The summer concert series continues.  Enjoy!

Concord Chamber Orchestra summer concerts begin

The first concert of the summer season for the Concord Chamber Orchestra is set for this Wednesday evening July 24 at 7 PM in Wauwatosa's Rotary Pavilion at 73rd and State.  Enjoy a great summer concert in the park with light classics, show tunes, and maybe a march.  A great way to break up the hectic week!

And the CCO will also be performing one week later, July 31 at 6:30 PM in Glendale as a part of Music In The Glen.  That performance will be indoors at Glen Hills Middle School.

So wherever you might live in the Milwaukee area, there is a concert nearby this summer.  As Obie Yadgar used to say every morning on the old WFMR, "Find a Concert and go to it!"

Upcoming Concerts

The summer season is in full swing now.

The Shorewood Concert Band performs on Thursday July 18th at 7 PM in Atwater Park.  Why not take in a fun concert on a Thursday evening?

And I have more information on the July concerts for the Racine Concert Band.  All concerts will be held at the Racine Zoo beginning at 7:30 on Sunday evenings in July.  The special guests include:
  • Greg Berg singing music of Handel and Gershwin on July 14th
  • Euphonium Soloist Paul Taylor and Trumpeter Eric Weiss on July 21
  • A special Children's Concert featuring circus performer Gypsy Geoff on July 28
The RCB concerts are always fun.  And I am always surprised at the quality of the music given that the band has only one rehearsal to put the whole program together.

Another tradition continues

The Racine Concert Band begins their summer season of concerts at the Racine Zoo on Sunday July 7, this evening, at 7:30.  Because of the Holiday, the program will be a patriotic one similar to the music performed on the 4th.

I will have more information on the music for the upcoming weeks soon.  Watch for that post.  But I can tell you that the concerts in July (7, 14, 21, and 28) will all begin at 7:30 PM and the concerts in August (4, 11, 18, and 25) will begin at 7 PM.  The concerts are all free.  But keep in mind that if you arrive at the Racine Zoo in the afternoon, you will have to pay Zoo admission.  Free entrance to the Zoo for the concert begins 30 minutes prior to the concert.

And be sure to play the Racine Concert Band Quiz to be entered into the Summer Spectacular!

See you at the Racine Zoo on Sundays this summer!
