Hoagy, Harry Potter at BCB concert Sunday

Thursday, July 21, 2011

BRAZIL -- The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of retired Greencastle teacher Matthew S. Huber, presents "Hogwarts to Star Dust" at 8 p.m. Sunday in the Forest Park bandshell.

Admission is free. The concert will be held rain or shine.

John Williams composed the music for the Harry Potter movies and the BCB will perform several of the best-known themes in an arrangement by Robert Smith.

Paul Yoder takes Hoagy Carmichael's "Star Dust" in an airy and variations style dating back more than 70 years.

Marches for the week are "March of the Women Marines" written in WWII by Louis Saverino of the President's Own U.S. Marine Band, "Sir Henry" by Karl L. King, "Rival Rovers" by Russell Alexander and "The Circumnavigators Club" by John Philip Sousa.

The BCB will perform Irving Berlin's song "Marie" along with Broadway's "Gypsy" by Jule Styne with "Everything's Coming Up Roses" and "Together Wherever We Go".

From the pen of Jerry Bilik, the BCB will continue the American Civil War Sesquicentennial with "American Civil War Fantasy."
