Come to Riverside Park in Bonita Springs and enjoy a Sunday afternoon with the Bonita Springs Concert Band as they play their last concert of the season on April 13 at 2:00 pm.
You will enjoy an afternoon filled with music that emphasizes the numerous talents of the band members. Our special soloist for this concert is our own virtuoso trumpeter, Lynn Asper, who will amaze you with Hoagie Carmichael’s Stardust. Lynn is an educator, professional trumpet performer, artist/clinician and author.
Our outstanding trombone section will dazzle you with Trombone Rag by John Higgins This is a bright jovial ragtime piece in the style of Henry Fillmore’s trombone smears.
Then it is the flute section’s turn to be featured in a fantasia Flutopia by David Schaffer. The whimsical opening melody combined with the light swing of the middle section gives the flutes and the audience a chance to have some fun.
Always a favorite, Cole Porter’s Begin the Beguine is a dance similar to a slow rumba that was modestly popular in the 1930s. It came from the Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique.
Rounding out the afternoon the band will play some jazz, show tunes, marches and other pieces that will make you want to dance
Bring your chairs, blankets, food and beverages and spend a relaxing afternoon with your own Bonita Spring Concert Band.
