After having its holiday concert canceled because of inclement weather, the Bowling Green Area Community Band will be back in action with a free concert Sunday at 4 p.m. in the Bowling Green City School's Performing Arts Center.
Under the baton of Conductor Thom Headley, the program will open with the "Seapower Fanfare," a pastiche of nautical themes, leading into the playing of the National Anthem.
Also on tap are two marches and "The Beatles, Echoes of an Era," the band's homage the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' American debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. Soloists in the Beatles medley will be: Jeremy Sison on trombone, Gary Keller on trumpet and flugelhorn, Howard Williams, on oboe; Travis Pennell, on horn and Kim Kucharski, on flute.
The concert's finale will be Alfred Reed's Russian Christmas, a musically complex and emotional work comprised of musical selections from the Russian Orthodox liturgy, that was to have been the centerpiece of the December concert.
The Jazz Band, directed by William Lake, will perform "Nardis," "Unit 7" and The haunting Thad Jones ballad "A Child Is Born," featuring flugelhorn soloist Gary Keller.
Now in its seventh concert season, the BGACB is comprised of more than 70 instrumentalists, ranging in age from college students to 91. The concert season runs eight or nine months of the year, serving the community of Bowling Green through a variety of events, both formal and informal.
