Naples Concert Band's Concert in the Park
The Naples Concert Band (www.NaplesConcertBand.org), under the direction of Harris Lanzel, will present its February Concert in the Park on Sunday, February 9 at 2:00 p.m. at the Cambier Park Bandshell. February marks the return of pianist John Davis who will perform two impressive selections with the 80-member Naples Concert Band (NCB), including “Theme from Exodus” and “Concerto Fantastico”. Broadway is also on tap with vocalists Craig Greusel and Jenny Bintliff and their presentation of “Highlights from Fiddler on the Roof”. Mozart’s “Finale from Symphony No. 40”, “Latin Celebration” and “A Copland Tribute” will provide the Band with plenty of room to flex its musical muscles. A concert highlight will be local composer Malinda Zenor’s new composition “Viva La Horn” featuring the NCB’s fabulous French Horn section. Special thanks to NCB entertainer sponsor, The Naples Zoo sponsored by Craig and Kathy Fenton. Guests are encouraged to arrive early with lawn chairs and blankets for seating. Admission is free, with donations appreciated. Donations received at each concert help to defray operating expenses and are applied to The Band’s Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships each year to deserving student members of The Band. For those interested in learning more about the Naples Concert Band, there will be a tent at all performances with information about future concerts, sponsorships, volunteer opportunities, and how to become a ‘Fan of the Band’ and receive a complimentary NCB hat. The Naples Concert Band is a non-profit organization dedicated to entertaining the community with old-fashioned concerts in the park. The Band’s 42nd season will expand upon last season’s record breaking performances. The schedule includes eight performances featuring special guest performances and an exciting mix of new literature and old favorites that will satisfy all tastes.
