Concert band set for second performance

The Nevada County Concert Band celebrates its 43rd season as a countywide band, with historical roots through local city-based community bands that date back to the 1880s. And just like then, they still play free concerts for all to enjoy, according to the organization.

On Sunday, the band will perform its second of three summer concerts, themed How Sweet It Is. From 5 to 7 p.m. the musicians will perform its summer band invitational — when they invite other musicians to join in creating a 120-piece band. Selections will include Glenn Miller’s “It Must Be Jelly,” the Latin rhythms of “Lemons and Limes,” Holst’s classic “First Suite in E-Flat for Military Band.” Broadway’s “Highlights from Oliver,” and a percussion feature with “Variations on a Kitchen Sink.” Also appearing are The Stamp Mill Stompers, Gold Country Brass, plus tenor saxophone and vocal soloists.

As always, the concert will be at Pioneer Park. Attendees are encouraged to pack and picnic, sit back and enjoy the show.
