Traveling Through Music
April 14, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The Southwest Florida Concert Band will perform a concert Traveling Through Music on Sunday April 14, at 2:00 P.M. at South Fort Myers High School, 14020 Plantation Rd, Fort Myers, FL 33912.
Our 50 member community band will open the concert with an upbeat arrangement by Robert Sheldon based on the theme of the Arkansas Traveler. The band will play a grooving Latin number called Carnival in Sao Paulo that will be hard to sit still for, and then feature one of our trumpet players in a solo number. There will be a stirring march from Italy called Florentiner and we will perform What A Wonderful World with a Saxophone solo. The band will play a Jamaican Folk Suite of 3 movements that is certain to give you the laid back feel of the Caribbean Islands. Our associate conductor has chosen an extremely impressive overture called Metroplex that has a lot of WOW factor. The music will take us on a journey through the Wonderful World of Disney. The program will also include some music from Greece and a dynamic and memorable arrangement of Curtain Call. Our Brass Quintet will show up to play a couple of numbers to round out the program. We will conclude the last concert of the season with The Stars and Stripes Forever by John Phillip.
The band will also be awarding its annual scholarships at this concert.
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.
