COLTS NECK HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM RT. 537 & FIVE POINTS RD.

 

This CNCB concert is “Not to be Missed”!

You are invited to the Colts Neck Township sponsored Community Band Concert that was previewed at the Monmouth Country Library Headquarters in Manalapan before an estimated overflow audience of 300 concert goers.  The music was multifaceted, fast paced and very upbeat, a sure cure for the winter blues.

The program includes a tribute to Leonard Bernstein, in honor of the centennial of his birth, with two Bernstein classics, Danzon and “America” from West Side Story.  The band is also playing two Percy Grainger pieces: Shepherd’s Hey and Irish Tune from County Derry.  You will find Shepard’s Hey, although not a tune that ever made Your Hit Parade, is very memorable in its arrangement and is splendidly played. You will discover that The Irish Tune from County Derry is none other than Danny Boy! On the play list are other great selections including Music from the Incredibles and a program of Stevie Wonder classics. You will find the march, The Klaxon very entertaining and Scenes from the Louvre captivating, like a great painting.

 I hope you avail yourself of the opportunity to join other music lovers in this festive evening of entertainment!
