The Lehigh Concert Band is moving towards the end of the 2015-2016 season and preparing our Spring musical extravaganza which will feature many of the musicians in the band. In November the band performed for the Lehigh Fall Festival, and our regular concert performance at Faith Lutheran church in Lehigh Acres. December was our annual Christmas concert also featuring the Lehigh Children’s Choir, and the concert can be viewed on our recordings page of the website. We also sent out small groups to play at the Lehigh Senior’s Center and Fountaincrest Retirement Residence. January was our salute to Broadway with music from Lion King, The Sound of Music, and other selections. A portion of the band also performed as a swing group at the annual Lehigh Chamber of Commerce Gala.
March and April concerts will showcase music from The Phantom of the Opera, The Jersey Boys, a Flute solo, a euphonium solo, music from Disney, Lord of the Dance, a vocal solo, some Dixieland music and more. The band will be recording the final concert in April and making a CD.
