It’s almost time again for our big Memorial Day Concert — this year, being performed ON MEMORIAL DAY (Monday, May 30). What better way to enjoy your day off of work than to attend a patriotic concert in the blessedly air conditioned Koger Center for the Arts?

In addition to our standard patriotic fare, this year’s concert will feature another original piece composed by John Moody, talented son of our esteemed conductor emeritus Dr. William Moody.

The PCB will also be welcoming a special guest conductor (yet to be announced!) to the podium to close our Memorial Day concert. At the beginning of the month, we held a contest to offer a U.S. military veteran to conduct the PCB in the playing of our National March, “The Stars and Stripes Forever” by John Philip Sousa. We look forward to honoring our guest with this unique opportunity. Please come out on Memorial Day to show this and all of our veterans our support, and help us honor all of our fallen servicemen and women this Memorial Day.

 

Phew! Well that was fun!

Wow! Thanks to everyone who made it out to our performance at the Koger Center on Saturday night. What did you think? (For you audience members, could you tell we were having a blast–literally?)

One concert down, and one more to go this month. The PCB is off to Charleston, SC next Saturday to perform the finale concert for the National Band Association convention at the Gaillard Center–right around the corner from Emanuel AME Church.

We’d love your help spreading the word to your Charleston area friends! Details can be found here, or you can invite them to our Facebook event page. Your help getting the word out is the best publicity we could hope for, and we’d love to fill that concert hall!
