Strike up the band. The legendary Lee County Community Band will begin its 136th year with a lively, fun-filled, free concert on Nov. 14 at 3 p.m. at Cape Coral High School.
In keeping with tradition for the season’s first concert, director Richard Bradstreet has selected a program featuring spirited and patriotic American music by American composers and a salute to U.S. military veterans. The program includes “Hosts of Freedom March,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “American Patrol,” Irving Berlin’s “Songs for America,” Patriotic Sing-Along, The Armed Forces Salute and other popular melodies.
The 50-member adult band will perform six concerts between November and April. Programs reflect the band’s well-earned reputation for lively, upbeat music and promise an entertaining mix of old favorites, energetic marches, beloved patriotic tunes, Broadway and Silver Screen hits, and a sing-along with emcee and vocalist Norman Jones.
Band members are musicians from all walks of life – career musicians, amateurs, and folks renewing skills from years past – who reside in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties. The band welcomes new members every year. The band rehearses Thursday evenings at St. Michael Lutheran School, Fort Myers. Persons interested in joining may phone John Fenn at 239-454-6430.
Lee County Community Band concerts are free of charge (donations accepted), and open to the public.
Additional concert dates are Dec. 12, Jan. 9, Feb. 13, March 13, and April 10. All concerts will be at Cape Coral High School, 2300 Santa Barbara Blvd., one block north of Veterans Parkway, beginning at 3 p.m.
