Concert band to offer a taste of summer | Entertainment News


ONEONTA — Melodies and beats will hint at warmer temperatures during the “Good Ol’ Summertime in Winter” concert in Oneonta at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 6, when the Oneonta Community Concert Band performs at the Foothills Performing Arts and Civic Center at 24 Market St. in Oneonta. The performance is free and open to the public.

According to a press release, the program will have “Summer in the City” as its subtheme and will feature pieces associated with New York. Kerri L. Hogle will lead the group.

“This concert will help keep us all warm as we explore the music that makes us think of summer in the Big Apple,” Hogle, a music teacher at Cooperstown Central School, noted in the statement. Selections will include “Manhattan Beach” and music from “West Side Story” and “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Around 25-30 players will appear in the group, which includes professional and amateur musicians from the region.

The Oneonta Community Concert Band Association presents varied programs at about seven concerts a year with the aim of sharing the band’s repertoire of yesterday and today.

Pandemic protocols will be observed during the March 6 performance.
