Event Description

The MVCC Concert Band, under the direction of Barb Seaton will host the annual Combined Band Concert with Utica College's band, directed by Michael J. DiMeo on Wednesday May 15 at 7:30 PM in the MVCC Theater.

Each ensemble will perform several pieces individually and then both groups (over 70 instrumentalists) will join on stage. The combined symphonic band will play an arrangement of the title song from Jerry Herman's "Hello Dolly!", selections from Giacchino Rossini's "La Boutique Fantasque" (The Magic Toy Shop), "Hooray for Hollywood!" a medley from the silver screen and conclude with "American Overture for Band" by Joseph Wilcox Jenkins.

Both bands are made up of musicians of all ages, from all walks of life, who enjoy making music together-students from high schools and both colleges, teachers of music and other subjects, professionals in other careers, retirees, etc.

The concert is free and open to the public.
