CLC spring concert to honor retiring conductor
The Central Lakes College Community Band and Jazz Ensemble will perform its spring concert titled "CODA" at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 8, in the Chalberg Theatre, Brainerd.
The theme is "The Best of the Last 27 Years," recognizing the retirement of conductor Steve Anderson. Featured will be American and British band classics, Sousa marches, "Star Wars" movie music and a variety of jazz styles from the CLC libraries.
The concert will feature Anderson on a tuba concertino with the concert band. This is the 27th year of the jazz band and the 25th year for the community band. Two original members of the community band will perform.
The community band draws its membership from the surrounding towns and cities with people traveling as much as 65 miles for rehearsals on Monday evenings during the band season. Ages range from 14 to 90-something, with many members having been with the band for over 20 years.
Concert admission is $5 for adults, with CLC students and children 12 and under admitted free.
