Piqua Civic Band Concert Season Set to Begin

The Piqua Civic Band is pleased to announce its 2016 Summer Season at Hance Pavilion located in Piqua’s Fountain Park. The band kicks off its season on July 4 at 2:00 p.m. as part of Piqua’s Fourth of July festivities. The concert entitled “America the Beautiful” will feature the music of some of our country’s greatest composers. Tenor Gregory Ashe from the Michigan Opera Theatre will be the band’s featured soloist for the afternoon. On July 14, the band presents “Young at Heart,” a concert for the child in everyone! Bring the entire family for an evening of music from the movies of Walt Disney and other fun surprises. Mr. Patrick Woods will be the band's trumpet soloist for "Beauty and the Beast." July 21, the band features many of its own members with a concert called “And All that Jazz!” Soloists from within the band will help us salute the music of the Big Band Era and pay tribute to Frank Sinatra and Glenn Miler. On July 28, we’ll explore American popular music as the band presents “American Pop.” Saxophonist, Mr. Bill Burns will be the band’s guest artist and will perform “Harlem Nocturne” and “Persuasion.” The band will wrap up its season on August 4 by saluting the “Songs of Stage and Screen.” This concert will feature great songs from operas, musicals, and movies. Dr. David Sievers, professor of vocal music at The University of Dayton, will be the band's guest vocalist for the evening.
