The Wytheville Community College Concert Band, under the direction of Frank Pugh, will present its annual Spring Concert on Tuesday, May 6, at 7 p.m. in the George Wythe High School Auditorium in Wytheville.
There is no admission charge and the public is invited to attend.
The program is entitled “Brushstrokes” and includes a sampling of music as varied as the colors on an artist’s palette. Come experience the timeless works of Beethoven and Mozart, the emotional melodies of “Mountain Thyme,” and the modern epic sounds of “Beyond the Clouds and Into the Heavens!”
The concert features a medley of memorable themes from the talented Henry Mancini, including “The Pink Panther,” “Moon River,” and “Baby Elephant Walk.” The arranging skills of former director Bill Svec are showcased on “The Famous 22nd Regiment March” and “Sentimental Journey.” If you’re a fan of musicals, you’ll be sure to enjoy “Man of La Mancha” and a Boston Pops adaptation of the toe-tapping “76 Trombones” from “The Music Man.”
The band is comprised of community members from all walks of life, including music teachers from area schools, students at the community college, and local high school students. The band is performing for the first time under the direction of Frank Pugh. Pugh is a 1987 George Wythe graduate and has served as the band director at Fort Chiswell High School and Middle School for the past 18 years.
The WCC Concert Band invites you to share a fun-filled evening of live music. Call up a friend or two, bring your family, and come experience “Brushstrokes” at the George Wythe Auditorium on May 6.
