Concert band performs on the green

Comox Valley Concert Band takes its show to the seaside, June 18 at 2 p.m. at Comox Marina Park.

Residents of the valley and visitors can enjoy the full sound of a fifty piece wind ensemble in a casual outdoor setting.

A unique dynamic occurs when music is performed in collaboration with the calls of seagulls, the laughter of children on swings and the rustle of breezes in the chestnut trees.

Bring a chair or blanket and share in an afternoon of music designed for the outdoor listener.

In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary the band performs Curnow’s “Canadian Folk Song Rhapsody,” the theme from Hockey Night in Canada and “Courtenay,” composed by the concert band’s very own Brian Gossip. Plenty of marches, hummable pop tunes and golden oldies will round out the programme.

Summer means music on the green and the concert band under the direction of Denise Marquette will be pleased to meet you there with sounds for the season. The concert is contingent on weather. Donations accepted. Sponsored by Comox Recreation.
