"Satchmo!" set for Sunday

"Satchmo, Leroy and the Duke Meet The March King" at Forest Park Sunday as the Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, presents a show of music by four of America's most beloved composers.

The 8 p.m. downbeat will move to the pavilion in case of rain.

"Satchmo! A Tribute To Louis Armstrong," arranged by Ted Ricketts, includes "What Wonderful World," "When the Saints Go Marching In," "St. Louis Blues" and "Hello, Dolly!"

From the pen of Leroy Anderson, the BCB offers "Sandpaper Ballet" along with Caesar Giovannini's "Alla Barocco," made popular with school bands in the 1960s and the spiritual "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen" in a setting by Sammy Nestico.

Fans of Duke Ellington will enjoy Paul Murtha's scoring of "Take the "A: Train," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," "Mood Indigo," "Caravan" and "It Don't Mean A Thing."

Marches are a highlight of any Brazil Concert Band show and four seldom played marches and the new release of a rag, all by John Philip Sousa, will be presented.

P.E.O. Chapter CB will meet on July 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the home of Carol Krag.
