The Brazil Concert Band will open 2021 with programs at 8 p.m. on June 6 and every Sunday through August 29 at Forest Park in Brazil, rain or shine.
The first rehearsal is at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 1, at the shell of the park or in case of rain, in the pavilion. The June 6 concert, “The 75th Anniversary of the End of World War II,” was scheduled as last year’s finale but was postponed due to the pandemic.
Band director Matthew S. Huber has led the 65-member BCB since 1982 and is the longest-serving bandleader in 163 years of service to the community.
Area musicians who are at least a freshman in high school and own an instrument themselves can join the BCB by contacting Huber at [email protected] or 812-691-1341.
The Brazil Concert Band traces its long history back to 1858 and has performed across the United States. He recorded professionally with two compact discs of music by Indiana March King Fred Jewell. Additionally, the BCB has received awards from local, state, and national institutions, including the John Philip Sousa Foundation’s Sudler Silver Scroll for Historic Bands.
