Next Concert: Sunday, April 7, 2019
We invite you to the Parkville Symphonic Band spring concert, to be presented on Sunday afternoon, April 7, at 3:00 p.m. in the Graham Tyler Memorial Chapel on the Park University campus in Parkville, Missouri. Music will feature John Williams’ March from the movie 1941, von Suppé’s Light Cavalry Overture, and your favorite selections from the musical Oklahoma. We will also feature our trumpet section in Leroy Anderson’s Buglers’ Holiday, a well-loved piece which despite its name could not possibly be played on bugles, but works supremely well on trumpets! Other works will include the lovely Only Light, Only Love, by Leslie Gilreath, a meditation on a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and the lively, Irish-influenced, Spirals of Light, by Sean O’Loughlin, who admits to more than a touch of Irish ancestry. Our varied musical fare includes music to appeal to all tastes!
Admittance to the concert is free, with freewill donations accepted for the Parkville Police Community Assistance Fund, which funds community outreach programs including Christmas time Shop-With-A-Cop events, and the late summertime Back-to-School Backpack program, which helps students in need by supplying good quality backpacks and school supplies as they head back to school in August. Police personnel are often very aware of families that are struggling to make ends meet, and are pleased to be able to extend help to children growing up under challenging circumstances. We hope you will join us in supporting this fine local organization (see the ParkvilleMo website-Police Department-Community Assistance Fund). More information on the band and concert can be found at ParkvilleSymphonicBand.org, or call (816) 741-7388.
