Symphonic Band to perform Sunday

The Jefferson City Community Symphonic Band will hold the first concert of its fourth season at 2 p.m. Sunday in the sanctuary of Capital West Christian Church, 1308 Fairgrounds Road.

The 50-piece ensemble, under the direction of Paul Hinman, will perform one hour of literature from regions around the world.

Following the Star-Spangled Banner, tunes will include “Faces of Kum-ba-yah” drawn from an African hymn; “Tropical Twilight” for Latin texture; “Fiddler on the Roof” excerpts highlighting the Slavic region; “Mountain Country Dances” blending folk music from the Appalachian and Scottish people; “Irish Tune from County Derry;” and a touch of French with songs from “Les Miserables.”

In the military band-style concert tradition, the concert will close with a march by John Philip Sousa, “Pride of the Wolverines.”

Admission is free as the concert is sponsored by Hawthorn Bank. Donations are welcome.
