2017-2018 Concert Season Membership Information
The Southampton Community Band Presents...
....the 2017-2018 Concert Season!
What an exciting history this band has enjoyed. Early 1998, Gil Gulielmi and George Lynch founded this band by contacting old friends and posting “musicians needed” papers on local community bulletin boards. Now, we embark on our TWENTIETH season together. This season will prove to be very exciting, as we have four very special programs in store for you. Please join us for our twentieth season! Programs will continue to be held at Klinger Middle School.
Here is a preview:
November 18th - We now have a fun tradition by getting a jump on the holiday season. This year we’ll be upping the excitement a bit. The first half of the concert will consist entirely of John Williams’ film music. As I’m sure you know, he is widely known as one of the finest film composers in history. The second half will be holiday tunes! Please join us as we will be “Celebrating John Williams”
January 13th - The band gets our groove on with “International Dances.” This concert will be very exciting. Think hoedowns and horas, two-steps and sambas, waltzes and the like. It will certainly be an exciting concert with international flair. Just in time for the Winter Olympic games too!
March 3rd –“Appreciation, by Request” This concert will be unforgettable. The bulk of our music will have been selected by you! Last year we handed out request surveys during our concerts. The most frequent requests will be voted on one final time in November, and we’ll perform the winners for you. Also, this will be a very special night, as we will formally honor the life of our second director, Marvin Feld, who passed away in February. The band has commissioned a local composer to write a piece in remembrance of Marvin. The composition’s premiere performance will be at this concert. Overall, the night will be both fun and poignant.
May 19th - Our 20th annual “Salute to the Armed Forces” will be just as exciting and memorable as it always has been. The music will be patriotic and reflective; historical and fun; and, exhilarating and thought-provoking; as we honor those in our Armed Forces. As always, all service personnel (active and retired) are admitted free. This year, the concert is on Armed Forces Day.
I hope you are as excited for this season as we are. I look forward to seeing you (and your friends) this November!
