Brazil Concert Band to present fall concert in Scottish Rite Cathedral

TERRE HAUTE — The Scottish Rite Valley of Terre Haute and the Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present the Annual Fall Concert at 3 p.m. Nov. 20 at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, 8th and Ohio streets in Terre Haute. Admission is free.

For more than 25 years the Scottish Rite and Brazil Concert Band have joined forces to present quality presentations. In 2003 and 2007 the band made two CDs of music by Indiana composer Fred Jewell on the stage of this historic former Vaudeville theater.

John Philip Sousa once remarked about the fine acoustics at the Hippodrome Theater, now the home of the Scottish Rite, during a concert with his famous band. The CDs will be for sale before and after the Nov. 20 concert.

The band will present an eclectic program offering excerpts from Gustav Holst’s “Second Suite in F,” “Jug of Punch” from Robert Smith’s “Irish Songs” with soloist T.J. Sneddon, “Selections from Phantom of the Opera,” arranged by Warren Barker, and “Columbia Grand Patriotic Potpourri” by George Barnard, which honors soldiers from the Civil War.

The classic overture of the day is “Poet and Peasant” by Franz von Suppe and arranged for the band by Henry Fillmore. Robert Pell will perform on the alto saxophone. He is a Brazil attorney and is a member of the Jackson Township Community Band. Marches by the “Big Four” American March Kings — Jewell, Karl L. King, Fillmore and Sousa — will keep toes tapping throughout the afternoon.

The band traces its origin to 1858, and even played for the Lincoln-Douglas Debates. The original members served together during the Civil War.

The band is well-traveled, having performed in Washington D.C., at Disney World, in New Orleans, New York City, at the Wisconsin Dells and in Memphis, Tenn. Huber, who joined in 1968, has been conductor the longest, completing 30 years on the podium.
