The award-winning Tacoma Concert Band, celebrating thirty years as the Northwest’s premier community band, presents a concert of lively music from both North and South of the Border. The program will be a salute to the South Sound’s vibrant Mexican-American community. Included in the program will be several works with a “fiesta” motif, plus excerpts from George Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess” and other delightful music. Featured soloist will be euphonium virtuoso Jason Gilliam, playing “Harlequin,” a true tour de force for the instrument.
The concert will be held on Saturday evening, May 7th (just two days after Cinco de Mayo!), 7:30 p.m., at Tacoma’s Pantages Theater. There will be gala fiesta decorations, a piñata for children to break, as well as free refreshments for all during intermission! Children 16 and under will be admitted FREE with a paid adult.
Ticket prices begin at $15, with substantial discounts for students, seniors, and military personnel. Contact the Broadway Center box office at 253-591-5894, or 1-800-291-7593. For more information, visit the TCB at www.tacomaconcertband.org.
