Swinging Into Spring Concert

March 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Swinging into Spring

The Southwest Florida Concert Band will perform a FREE Swinging Into Spring Concert featuring music from Glen Miller to Michael Bublé on Sunday March 13, at 2:00 P.M. at South Fort Myers High School 14020 Plantation Rd.  Fort Myers.
Our 45 member community band will open the concert with an upbeat arrangement called Jump Swing Fever where you will want to get up and dance in the aisle. Hear In A Miller Mood which features many of Glenn Miller’s favorite melodies to swing along to, and a Tribute to Sammy Davis which will bring back memories of the songs you grew up with. We will also perform a swing band arrangement of Duke Ellington music. Crooner’s Serenade are hit songs brought back to popularity by Michael Bublé including I’ve Got You Under My Skin, and Save the Last Dance. Our vocalist Bob Helfrich will sing Moondance. Of course there will be a march, John Philip Sousa’s Washington Post, and for Saint Patrick’s Day we will perform the main theme for the Irish Dance sensation Lord of the Dance. For Valentine’s Day the band will perform three Beatles love songs you can sing along with. There will be the dramatic and impressive overture The Hounds of Spring  to show of the musicality of the band and a driving Blues Brothers arrangement which includes I Can’t Turn You Loose, Soul Man and Everyone Need Someone To Love. The concert will conclude with the driving drum feature by Benny Goodman Sing, Sing, Sing.

 

The wide variety of music is certain to appeal to all audience members and it is a not to be missed concert of the newest concert band in Southwest Florida.

All concerts are FREE with donations accepted. Information on the group, our scholarship program, and other performances can be found on our website.
