OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego City Band presents “Melodies and Movies” at Breitbeck Park on July 20 at 7:30 p.m.
The ensemble will be performing a wide variety of styles appropriate for all ages and musical tastes.
The ensemble will play a medley of Anything Goes, Begin the Beguine, Night and Day, and Just One of Those Things, all popular songs by great American songwriter Cole Porter.
Traditional American melodies Shenandoah arranged by Frank Ticheli and Gershwin’s An American in Paris will be highlighted, as well as Holst’s Moorside March and Vaughan William’s Folk Song Suite.
The blockbuster movie score Pirates of the Caribbean will engage young and old listeners alike.
And of course, no city band concert would be complete without a couple of energetic marches by John Phillip Sousa.
These concerts are sponsored by the city of Oswego and the Music Performance Trust Fund, through the Oswego County Musicians Union.
