The 70-piece Nevada County Concert Band begins its 48th season with big band, classic, jazz, folk, film and popular music, all centering around the number nine, according to a release.
This concert is themed “9 Times out of 10.”
Highlights will include: “Fame and Fortune,” a 1919 circus march; The excitement of “Eureka! The Great American Gold Rush;” Broadway show tunes from “South Pacific” and “West Side Story;” The sultry jazz strains of “Harlem Nocturne;” A medley of big band classics; Film tunes from “Up,” “The Wizard of Oz,” and Danny Elfman’s “Batman;” An irresistible taste of “Love Potion Number 9.”
The band always has a good time, engaging the audience with special treats like a trumpet trio, a saxophone soloist, a vocalist, costumes and props, and perhaps even a line dance number.
This concert is free, open to the public, accessible and family-friendly. Bring a lawn chair, shade, and a picnic dinner, or visit the club for food, beer or wine service.
Nonprofit donations to support the band will be gratefully accepted.
This open-air concert takes place on the golf course’s driving range, adjacent to the clubhouse and parking lot.
