The Community Band of Brevard presents their first concert of the season with “A Salute to America’s Citizens: Their Lives & Pastimes” at 3:00 PM on Sunday, September 9th at the Merritt Island High School Auditorium, located at 100 Mustang Way (off North Courtenay Parkway, 32953). A musical revue of America and its pastimes, the themed concert will feature music by familiar American composers Aaron Copland, Morton Gould, Samuel Barber and more. Vocalist Jeanie Black will perform the Sandi Patti version of The Star Spangled Banner, as well as the challenging Knoxville Summer of 1915. Popular bass, Jim Boyles will narrate The Lincoln Portrait and A Day the Circus. The musical ‘tip of the hat’ to American baseball, Pastime, by American composer Jack Stamp, was conceived of during a Giants’ game in Candlestick Park in 1998. Stamp incorporated actual salutes to specific players with musical figures in the measures corresponding to the player’s numbers. Led by conductor Marion Scott, “A Salute to America’s Citizens” is free with no ticket required and no reserve seating.
