The 45 member Southwest Florida Concert Band will perform an All About the Blues Concert on April 16 at 2 p.m. at South Fort Myers High School, 14020 Plantation Road, Fort Myers.
Join the band as they play a wide variety from Sousa’s Who’s Who in the Navy Blue March, to the driving music of the Blues Brothers.
The vocalists will sing the Frank Sinatra medley “Ol Blue Eyes” and music from the Broadway show Chicago featuring jazz and blue songs. Hear the iconic crooner’s song “Blue Moon” and the swinging clarinet solo “Wild Cat Blues.” With a little bit of “Blue Tango” and the “Tuba Tiger Rag,” the program will appeal to everyone.
The Brass Monkeys quintet will make an appearance to St. Louis Blues in an upbeat Dixieland style. The band will be awarding the annual music scholarship award at the show. The show will finish the season with a rousing Stars and Stripes Forever featuring the piccolo section.
All concerts are free with donations accepted. Information on the group, the scholarship program, and other performances can be found online at www.SouthwestFloridaConcertBand.org
