Elvis is in the House With the City of Dunedin Concert Band
Plan to be “All Shook Up” on St. Patrick’s Day
Dunedin, --Tuesday evening March 17, the Dunedin Concert Band will be collaborating with Steve Roberti, one of the top Elvis Presley tribute artists in the country. “Elvis” will join the band in singing a medley of Presley’s hits. Under their new music director and conductor, Dr. Louis Alan Zagar, this ensemble and its 25-year history with the City of Dunedin, has definitely been revitalized.
With an infusion of new music, the vibrant enthusiasm of its conductor and a refreshing new approach to how the band rehearses, the “new” Dunedin Concert Band emerged this past year with truly exciting performances at the Dunedin Boat Parade and their own Christmas Holiday concert that their audiences are still talking about.
Along with the Golden Hits of Elvis Presley, the band will feature other great charts as well. The Dunedin Concert Band will be playing works by Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, Judy Garland, The Beatles, George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein’s incredible Broadway hit, “West Side Story.” According to Zagar, “This is probably one of the most musically challenging, but tuneful concert programs for band that I have put together and covers just about every style of music from the 1920s through today. If I can brag just a little, this will be no cookie-cutter band concert. This, folks, will be a performance in every sense of the word!”
The St. Patrick’s Day performance of the Dunedin Concert Band will be held at the Dunedin Community Center, located at 1920 Pinehurst Road (on the corner Michigan and Pinehurst Avenues), in Edinburgh Hall at 7:30 p.m. The concert is open to the public and there is no admission charge. A free will offering will be taken at its conclusion. Immediately following the concert, the audience will be able to meet “Elvis” (Mr. Roberti) along with Dr. Zagar in the lobby – so bring your camera!
