The Oak Ridge Community Band will perform during a concert at Alvin K. Bissell Park on Sunday, August 4.
It’s the band’s third concert of the summer.
The concert will start at 7 p.m. Sunday.
The Community Band will perform a “Best of Summer” program, which will include swing, jazz, show tunes, and marches. There is no admission fee for the summer concerts, although donations are gratefully accepted to help with expenses, a press release said.
The public is encouraged to bring chairs or blankets for outdoor seating, the press release said. Refreshments will be available. There is a paved area for wheelchairs.
“This is a family-friendly event, so bring your friends and family and plan to enjoy a casual and relaxing evening of entertainment!” the press release said.
Director Shaun Salem has prepared a program of music that includes Henry Gass’s arrangement of “A Tribute to Glenn Miller,” John Williams’s exciting “Midway March,” Shaun Salem’s own “Windfall,” and Frank Ticheli’s “Cajun Folk Songs” featuring “La Belle et le Capitaine” and “Belle.”
Other songs to be performed during the “Best of Summer” concert on Sunday will be Henry Fillmore’s “Americans We,” Ted Ricketts’s “Satchmo!— Tribute to Louis Armstrong,” and two John Philip Sousa songs: “The Beau Ideal March” and “The Stars and Stripes Forever.”
