Come out for an ‘Enchanted Night’ with the Brazil Concert Band


News Release

---- — The Brazil Concert Band will deliver an “enchanted night” performance at 8 on Sunday in Forest Park at Brazil, rain or shine.

“Enchanted Night,” a circus waltz by Karl L. King, along with his two-step “The Walking Frog” and “Diamond Jubilee,” form a medley representing King’s most famous marches.

A little-known work by Richard Rodgers, “The Regents March,” will make its debut with the BCB, along with an unusual march by Indiana’s own Red Skelton titled “Red’s White and Blue March.”

Longtime Brazil Concert Band member Jim Chesterson will solo on “A Trumpeter’s Prayer” by Camarata-Swayzee. Chesterson is retired from the Indiana Air National Guard and plays in several bands in the Wabash Valley.

Also on the play list this week are “A Walking Tune,” “The Triton,” “There’s Nothing Wrong In La-La Land” and overture “The Cloth of Gold” and “Quality-plus,” both by Fred Jewell.

The Brazil Concert Band’s grand finale performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 25.

The BCB is directed by Matthew S. Huber.
