Polk County Enterprise, June 2007
LIVINGSTON -- The second Gazebo Concert of the 2007 season for The Livingston Area Community Band will be at 7 p.m. Monday, June 4 at the Livingston Courthouse Gazebo.
This is the seventh year for the band to present their Gazebo Concert series. The third concert is scheduled for Monday, June 18.
The Gazebo concerts will be followed with concerts at Memorial Point on Saturday, June 30 and Lakeside in Onalaska for the Polk County July 4th celebration and fireworks. This concert will feature a march written for our band and titled, "The East Texas March."
The premier performance will be conducted by the composer Kelly Bennette, a graduate of Lamar University and former member of the Beaumont Symphony. The only repeated selection from the first concert two weeks ago is "Harlem Nocturne" performed by Dennis Athey, on alto sax.
Some of the other selections you will hear Monday are: a very exciting 2001 arrangement of "Finiculi-Finicula," the ever popular "Fandango," "Lady of Spain," "Lassus Trombone" featuring the trombone section and "Brass On Broadway" a medley of broadway favorites including "Slaughter On Tenth Avenue," "The Carousel Waltz," "The Music Of The Night" and "Seventy Six Trombones."
The conductor of the band since its organization in 996 has been Lowell Clark, who served as Director of Music for the Beaumont I.S.D. for 21 years prior to his retirement to Livingston.
