The Cottonwood Community Band, under the direction of
Dr. Sy Brandon, will be performing a concert themes as “Stage and Screen” at the Phillip England Center for the Performing Arts, in Camp Verde on Sunday, May 5, at 3:00 PM.
The band is a 45 piece all volunteer wind ensemble made up of musicians from all over the Verde Valley and they perform eight formal concerts each year plus make appearances at various local civic functions. It’s a non-audition band open to anyone who can read high school level band music.
For this concert, the band will be performing music from several famous Broadway plays and movies such as Girl Crazy (George & Ira Gershwin), Dr. Zhivago (Maurice Jarre), Fiddler on the Roof (Jerry Bock & Sheldon Harnick), Camelot (Alan Lerner & Frederick Lowe), and Les Miserables (Claude-Michel Schonberg). There will also be a surprise selection or two. This is music that virtually everyone knows and enjoys, so it should be a fun afternoon.
