The Bonita Springs Concert Band, under the direction of Gary Smith, will present a free concert on Sunday, April 5, from 2:00 to 4:00 P.M. in Riverside Park on Old 41 in Bonita Springs.
It’s the last concert of the season and it’s all about marches!
The thrilling Aces High March was composed by Ron Goodwin for the film “Battle of Britain”. (In the UK it was called Luftwaffe March.) The glorious and riveting main theme was hailed as one of the best pieces of martial music ever written for a movie.

Lassus Trombone is the ultimate “good-time” trombone feature. This is the most famous of Fillmore’s Trombone Smears, and Loras Schissel’s edition has been the arrangement of choice of many of the top service and professional bands.

The Big 11 Medley, arranged by John Tatgenhorst, includes the fight songs for Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Northwestern, Michigan State, Illinois, Purdue, Ohio State, and Penn State.
So wear your school colors and march on over to the concert. Remember to bring a chair or a blanket. Refreshments will be available from Royal Scoop Homemade Ice Cream.
