The Southwest Florida Concert Band will perform a FREE concert
Sunday March 15, at 2:00 P.M.
South Fort Myers High School
14020 Plantation Road, Fort Myers
Swinging Into Spring
Our 45 member community band will start the concert with an upbeat arrangement of In The Miller Mood which features many of Glenn Miller’s favorite melodies to swing along to and a Tribute to Sammy Davis which will bring back memories of the songs you grew up with. We will also perform a swing band arrangement of Duke Ellington and the rocking, soul music of Ray Charles. Crooner’s Serenade is a trio of hit songs brought back to popularity by Michael Bublé including Moondance, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, and Save the Last Dance. Our vocalist Debra Tosh will sing George Gershwin’s memorable S’Wonderful and Defying Gravity from the Broadway musical Wicked. Of course there will be a march, John Philip Sousa’s Washington Post, and for Saint Patrick’s Day we will perform the main theme for the Irish Dance sensation Lord of the Dance. There will be the dramatic overture Sedona to show of the musicality of the band and a driving Blues Brothers arrangement which includes I Can’t Turn You Loose, Soul Man and Everyone Need Someone To Love. The concert will also include the driving drum feature by Benny Goodman Sing, Sing, Sing.
The annual band scholarships will be awarded at this concert.
It is a not to be missed performance of the newest concert band in Southwest Florida. We HOPE to see you there.
All concerts are FREE with donations accepted. Information on the group, our scholarship program, and other performances can be found on our website.
