Bring the family and celebrate Mother’s Day with the Sacramento Concert Band! This year’s concert features a wide variety of exceptional music. Among the selections is “Salute to American Jazz” (St. Louis Blues, Birdland, A Night in Tunisia, It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing), Rachmaninoff’s “Themes from Piano Concerto No. 2”, “Out Of This World” (including Star Wars, Theme From E.T.), “Fantasia for Alto Saxophone”, “Celtic Air and Dance”, and more.
As part of the concert, the Sacramento Concert Band is excited to feature some outstanding young performers, such as this year’s winner of the Sacramento Valley Symphonic Band Association scholarship, bassoonist Alexandra Buckman, from Placer High School and Saturday Club award winner alto saxophonist Myles Taylor from Cosumnes River College. In addition, performing several selections with the Band are members of the Mission Avenue School Concert Band. Please join the Sacramento Concert Band in welcoming these concert stars of the future.
The Sacramento Concert Band is a 50-member ensemble, under the direction of Grant Parker.
