Brazil Band set to kick off outdoor concert season

The Brazil Concert Band, under the direction of Matthew S. Huber, will present its opening performance of the 2013 season at 8 p.m. on Sunday at the Forest Park Band Shell, or Pavilion in case of rain.

Opening night is titled “Do You Hear The People Sing?” and will feature three musical operas.

The title is from “Les Miserables,” as seen in London, New York City and in the cinema about life in early 19th century Paris with the songs “At the End of the Day,” “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Master of the House” and “On My Own” in Warren Barker’s arrangement of Claude-Michel Schonberg’s score.

From George Gershwin, the Band offers “Porgy and Bess” with songs “Summertime,” “A Woman is a Sometime Thing,” “I Got Plenty o’ Nuttin,’” “Bess, You is My Woman,” “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” “Picnic Parade” and “Oh Lawd, I’m On My Way,” all in a setting by Robert Russell Bennett.

“Zampa” by Frenchman Ferdinand Herold is a classic with tunes first heard on stage in Paris in 1831. Also known as “The Marbled Bride,” “Zampa” is a most exciting opera overture which reminds one of cartoon background music.

Brazil Concert Band trombonist Rick Buehler’s arrangement of “Joyful Noise” will highlight the trombone and euphonium sections. Buehler is a retired high school band director and a graduate of Ball State University.

The band will salute the late Harold Ellshoff who performed with the band from 1960 to 2013. Ellshoff loved marches and even wrote one, “The 7th Fleet Band,” while serving as a Navy musician aboard the USS Wisconsin during the Korean War.

All marches this week are dedicated to Ellshoff’s memory and include “Jack Tar March” and “Who’s Who in Navy Blue,” both by John Philip Sousa, “From Tropic to Tropic” by Russell Alexander, and Ellshoff’s “The 7th Fleet Band” as the opener.

Janelle R. Huber, Indiana State University School of Music graduate, will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
