The Oak Ridge Community Band has a “New Millennium” Concert this afternoon (Sunday afternoon).
It’s the last concert of the 2013-2014 subscription series before the outdoor concert season begins on Memorial Day, a press release said. Today’s concert starts at 3:30 p.m. at the Oak Ridge High School Performing Arts Center.
Sunday’s concert promises to be both exciting and entertaining, a press release said. Special guests are members of the Oliver Springs High School Band and their director Tim Michaels, who is a current Community Band member. The OSHS band will perform two numbers, and Michaels will be soloist as he plays “Ode To Trumpet” accompanied by the Community Band.
In addition, the concert program will be dedicated to two Community Band members who recently passed away. Flutist Rita Anderson and trombone player Fred Postma will be remembered for their combined 49 years of service to the Band.
Admission to the concert is $8 for adults and $6 for senior citizens and students. Free refreshments will be served in the lobby at the conclusion of the program. For more information, call (865) 482-3568 or visit www.orcb.org.
