Oswego City Band Concert Pays Tribute to Percy Grainger

On Wednesday July 7th at 7:30 pm in Breitbeck Park, Oswego’s City Band will present a concert that pays tribute to composer Percy Grainger. Selections of Grainger’s music: the Children’s March, Shepherds Hey, Country Gardens and Molly on the Shore will be featured. Other selections will include a Medley from My Fair Lady and Trumpeter’s Lullaby performed by Soloist Ron Stewart.

City Band director Donald Goodness stated, “This tribute to Grainger not only celebrates the composer’s birthday on July 8th, but celebrates his many compositions for concert band and the unique style in which he writes.”

This is the second concert of the 2010 Summer Sunset Concert Series that is celebrating its 75th Anniversary Season.
