Spring Concert

April 19, 2015 @ 3:00 pm

Free

richard_pearceThe Believers Concert Band will commemorate the Sesquicentennial of the end of the Civil War in our annual Spring Concert.

The Civil War and those years afterward saw a general growth of the arts and music in America. Amateur musical ensembles of this era can be seen as the birth of American popular music.

Music author, David Ewen describes these early amateur bands as combining “the depth and drama of the classics with undemanding technique, eschewing complexity in favor of direct expression. If it was vocal music, the words would be in English, despite the snobs who declared English an unsingable language. In a way, it was part of the entire awakening of America that happened after the Civil War, a time in which American painters, writers and ‘serious’ composers addressed specifically American themes.”

During our Spring Concert, we will play some of the music of America that has helped us through the centuries. We hope that you can join us.
