Friends, Patrons, and supporters of the Racine Concert Band,

The Racine Concert Band concludes its Centennial Celebration with a free concert at Washington Park High School on Tuesday November 1st at 7 pm.
A “Rooted in Racine” concert, the program features a guest artist performance by Bill Nelson, a veteran of professional stages in the Milwaukee and Fox Valley areas and a career music educator in Ripon and Appleton schools.

The Park High School and UW-Parkside alumnus will perform the Tenor Saxophone Concerto by Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Ward, and as a clarinetist in Pie in the Face Polka by Henry Mancini.
 
Parking is available in the Teacher’s Lot west of the building complex
at 1901 12th Street. The John Burns Theater is located ahead and to the right when entering the building from either 12th Street or the Teacher’s Lot.
 
The program also features the premiere of a new band version Melodia by internationally acclaimed Wisconsin native Daron Hagen in an authorized transcription by Mark Eichner.
 
Huntingtower by Ottorino Respighi, dance music by G. F. Handel, and a rousing Saint-Saëns march complete the Racine Concert band program. The combined bands will close the concert with a performance of Danny Elfman’s film music for Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”


The season continues with concerts on Tuesday, Feb. 28, at 7 PM at Horlick High School and on Thursday, May 25, at 7 PM at Case High School.



We hope to see you at the concerts!--
