I’ve got three performances coming up in the next few days, if you’re around western North Carolina and looking for some live music. Tomorrow (Sunday, March 2, 2014) I’m conducting the Smoky Mountain Brass Band at Weaverville United Methodist Church. We start our concert at 3 PM. We’ve got a mix of music composed and arranged for a British style brass band, including pieces like Jubilee Overture by Philip Sparke, The Earle of Oxford’s Marche from the William Byrd Suite by Gordon Jacob, and a medley from Les Miserables arranged by Ron Glynn. We’re doing a repeat performance of this concert at Deerfield Episcopal Retirement Community the next Tuesday, March 4, 2014, if you’re a resident there or know someone who is.
Speaking of March 4, right after I finish conducting our Smoky Mountain Brass Band concert I’ll be jumping into my car and rushing over to play a swing dance at the Grove House complex in Asheville. This time I’m performing with the House Hoppers, a traditional jazz band that specializes in playing music for social dancers.
If you’re in western NC these next few days come on out and support live music.
