From Bach to the Blues

The Oswego City Band is pleased to announce that the next concert in the Summer Sunset Concert Series will take place on Wednesday August 10th at 7:00pm in Breitbeck Park. (Note the time change from the July concerts.)

City Band, under the direction of Donald Goodness will present a concert with the theme “From Bach to the Blues.” The concert will trace the evolution of western music from the Baroque Era through the Romantic Period, to Ragtime and the Blues of the early 20th century. Among the composers whose works will be performed are J.S. Bach, Peter I. Tchaikovsky, Scott Joplin and Ray Henderson.

“This promises to be one of the most entertaining programs of the summer,” said Goodness. “Using a theme for each concert has been a way to keep the concerts relevant and interesting as well as musical and entertaining.”

City Band has been an Oswego tradition since 1935. Generations of Oswego citizens have enjoyed listening to these programs while watching the spectacular sunsets on Lake Ontario. The entire community is invited to attend this free concert.
