Great concert in Racine coming up

The Racine Concert Band is in the middle of their summer season, and has some wonderful guest artists this year.  One such vocalist is mezzo soprano Allison Hull.  She joins the band on Sunday July 27 at 7:30 at the band shell in the Racine Zoo on Main Street.

Ms. Hull will perform music of Mozart and Denza in the first section of the concert, and will follow with popular music by Gershwin and Arlen.  Even the announcer Dan Rosen from WRJN radio commented on her "great pipes" during last year's performance.  It will be worth a special trip to hear this concert.

The band will be playing a much-lesser-known work by John Philip Sousa:  The Foshay Tower Washington Memorial March.  The backstory on this music is fascinating, but the march itself is excellent.  I always look forward to hearing this one.

See you at the Racine Zoo on the 27th at 7:30 for the Racine Concert Band and Ms. Allison Hull.
