The Summit Concert Band hosted Music at the Summit Adult Band Camp, where musicians from more than 16 states came to Breckenridge from June 25-29 for rehearsals, sectionals and classes at the Village at Breckenridge.

The camp concluded on the 29th with “Hands Across the Sea,” a concert at the Riverwalk Center in Breck. The concert featured something for everyone, with symphonic, popular and patriotic band music from the United States and the United Kingdom, including both the American and British national anthems.

Highlights included Gustav Holst’s “Second Suite in F,” “Eagle Squadron March,” by Kenneth Alford, and “Gaelforce,” by Peter Graham. On the lighter side, the band performed “The Symphonic Beatles,” George Gershwin’s “Embraceable You,” featuring vocalist Margaret Banton and “Soul Bossa Nova,” by Quincy Jones (arranged especially for Music at the Summit). The concert ended with a rousing rendition of John Philip Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever.”
