MIAMI — The Globe-Miami Centennial Band will offer a Spring Concert on Sunday, April 23, at 4 p.m. The concert will be performed at the Miami High School Auditorium, which is located on Ragus Road, behind the Claypool WalMart.
Our director, Nolan Frost, has chosen all new concert and jazz music for the 35-member, all-volunteer band. There will be a couple of classics: Leroy Anderson’s “Wearing of the Green” and Edvard Grieg’s “March of the Tolls,” as well as some modern concert band scores: “Bayou Breakdown” by Brant Karrick and “Cajon Folk Songs” by Frank Tichelli.
The Jazz Band will play “All In,” “My Foolish Heart,” “Alone Together,” and “How High the Moon.” Popular vocalist, Marsha Cowan will sing “You Do Something to Me,” by Cole Porter.
The concert is free; donations are always welcome.
April 23 will be our last concert for this season. Musicians interested in joining the band should call 928-200-9100. Rehearsals will start again Aug. 3, and continue every Thursday through the school year, from 6:30 to 8 (concert band), and 8 to 9:30 p.m. (jazz band).
