Music for GIs, Rosie the Riveter
The big-band sound of the “County Line Community Band” will be showcased Sunday, March 2, at 3 p.m. in the Floresville Event Center, located on S.H. 97 West, near the River Park. Admission to this event is free.
What makes this concert unique is the “County Line Band” will perform what is called big-band sounds, featuring the silver tones of Todd Phillips, solo trumpet. This concert will be a trip to the past for all the senior citizens in the audience and a great study in style for high school and college students.
Most high school bands will not even attempt to present this kind of program because of the styles and rhythm patterns involved. The “County Line Band” is directed by Jerry Hogue, who at one time was the junior high and high school band director in Floresville. His experience in professional playing has enabled him to pass along his knowledge to the community band members and we will give every effort to make your afternoon a memorable experience.
The “County Line Community Band” welcomes all, There is plenty of room for disabled persons and wheelchairs, and you can move your chair as close as you like to the band.
For more information, contact Robert Green at 830-484-2114.
