Join with the band in your favorite space-themed costume as we musically visit the depths of space. The program will include music from the movies Star Trek, Star Wars, and Apollo 13 as well as Gustav Holst's “Jupiter” from The Planets. Come dressed as your favorite Star Trek hero, a Wookie, Jedi, or other character for an evening of music sure to be out of this world. There will be a children's costume parade with prizes. Refreshments will be served. SPECIAL APPEARANCE: The WCCB will be joined by local members of the 501st Legion.
The WCCB follows everyone's favorite elf, traveling around the world in a night filled with ancient carols and familiar sounds of the holidays. Featuring music from England, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Scandinavia, and the USA. Join the band for what's sure to be a musical highlight of your holiday season.
Composer James Curnow will be guest conductor for highlights in this program of music from the land of Ireland. With Nicholas Brown's special guest performance on the uilleann pipes, the band will get you sham-rocking on the night before St. Patrick's Day—a must-see/must-hear concert for anyone claiming to be Irish for this holiday! This unique event is supported by a grant from the Frederick S. Upton Foundation.
The final concert of the regular season brings music from the West to Southeastern Michigan. Featuring music from John Wayne's final film The Cowboys, Aaron Copland's Hoe-Down, and a good old fashioned sing-a-long, the program is sure to inspire the cowboy in all of us.
Wind and percussion ensembles from the WCCB will perform music from a variety genres. Food & bar (cash only). Admission: FREE. Donations will support the Ken Bowman Memorial Scholarship Fund to send a middle- or high-school band student to the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp.
