COCC Cascade Winds Band Concerts This Weekend
I know I have mentioned the Cascade Winds several times on this site already , but I'm going to mention them again. Why? Because we have concerts coming up this weekend.
Though I've yet to see any of you other than Simone actually show up to one of these things <shaking finger>, you'll need to trust me that this is going to be a great show. The concerts are on Sunday at 2:00PM and Monday at 7:30PM at the COCC Pinckney Center for the Arts. Both shows are free, though seats are on a first come, first serve basis.
Never been to one of these concerts before? This isn't your typical High School marching band, nor is it the "put you to sleep" crap the local symphony occassionally plays (of which I'm a member, too, so I can say that). Everybody I know who has gone to one has had a great time and never realized the talent that we have around here. The director of the group is very entertaining, as well.
And if you want to see me act more like a spazz, it'll be worth the trip, as a couple of the pieces I'm playing I'm covering the parts of three percussionists (that's drummers for you folks who don't know the terminology).
So what the heck are we playing? A bunch of great wind ensemple pieces, including "Carnival Overture" by Antonin Dvorak, Georges Bizet's "L'Arlesienne Suite No. 2", "Prelude on an Old English Hymn" by Robert Sheldon, "Tales of a Traveler" by Sousa and by David Holsinger "One Day, in a Small Town . . ." . It'll be a great show, and be sure to say "Hi" to me during intermission!
