The Oak Ridge Community Band will present an “Early Music” Concert on Oct. 13 at Oak Ridge High School.
The concert starts at 3:30 p.m. in the ORHS Performing Arts Center at 1450 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
This concert is the first of six indoor concerts in the “Music for a Lifetime” series scheduled for October, November, December, January, February, and April. These concerts will take the audience from early compositions up to the 1890s, then continue through the 20th century featuring the roaring ’20s, Big Band era on through the Nifty Fifties, Swinging Sixties, Generation X, and ending with music representing the New Millenium.
The Oct. 13 “Early Music” concert will feature such famous early composers as Wagner, Debussy, Tchaikowsky, Strauss, Handel, and Sousa. Tickets at the door are $8 for adults and $6 for senior citizens and students. Free refreshments will be provided at the conclusion of the program.
The public will have the opportunity at the Oct. 13 concert to purchase season membership cards costing $15 for an individual and $30 for a family (parents and children), providing a significant savings over buying tickets at the door at each concert in the Music for a Lifetime series, a press release said. Any donation over the price of the member cards may be tax-deductible.
