What: No Strings Attached, presented by Summit Concert Band
When: Thursday, April 21, 7 p.m.
Where: Dillon Community Church, 371 E. La Bonte, Dillon
The Summit Concert Band presents “No Strings Attached,” a concert of eclectic band music on Thursday, April 21 at 7 p.m. at the Dillon Community Church. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.
Selections for the concert are diverse and will include marches, polkas, arias, waltzes, novelty tunes and overtures. “No Strings Attached” will venture from K.L. King’s “Hosts of Freedom” march and dance to his “Broadway One-Step,” followed by Bach’s inspiring “Aria (When Thou Art Near).” To totally change the mood, the concert will then explore Hertel-De Ville’s “Cocobolo Polka,” featuring a xylophone solo by Karen Kaminski and a caprice by A. Pryor entitled “The Whistler and His Dog” featuring a piccolo solo by D.J. Woolsey. Sousa starts the second half of the concert with “The Fairest of the Fair” march and, somewhat out of character, a waltz, “I’ve Made My Plans for the Summer,” with vocals by founder and past-president of Summit Concert Band Sandy Cleveland and guest conducting by Bill Kyrioglou, president of the band. Cleveland will also be singing John W. Bratton’s “The Teddy Bears Picnic,” as arranged by W.C. O’Hare. The audience will be encouraged to sing along on both selections. The concert will conclude with the ever popular “Light Cavalry Overture” by Franz von Suppe and arranged by Henry Fillmore. Summit Concert Band is under the direction of Lt. Col. (Ret.) Beth Steele, who, during her Army career, was associate director of the U.S. Army Band, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Army Band and Chorus in Europe. She also directs the Alpine Orchestra in Chaffee and Lake counties.
