Concert Band 'in the Broadway Mode'

MEADVILLE — The Concert Band of Northwest Pennsylvania’s next concert, “An Evening in the Broadway Mode,” is today at 7:30 p.m. in the lobby of Shafer Auditorium on the campus of Allegheny College, Meadville.

The concert, which is free and no tickets or reservations are necessary, was originally planned to take place in Diamond Park. It was moved inside due to expected hot temperatures. Since the concert was moved inside, seating will be provided by the band.

The concert will be conducted by the assistant conductor Greg Tower of Fairview. He has been a member of the trombone section of the Concert Band of Northwest Pennsylvania since its beginning in 1982. He earned a bachelor’s degree in music education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a master’s degree in music education at Youngstown State University.

He was the junior high and assistant high school band director at Conneaut, Ohio. Currently, he is a financial planner and a partner in the Investment Center of Erie.

The soloist for the concert will be Aimée Reash of Meadville. She is a member of the Pelletier Library staff at Allegheny College. She also teaches singing at the college.

Reash is the principal tuba of the Greenville Symphony Orchestra and the camp director of the Band Camp for Adult Musicians at Allegheny College. She will sing “Summertime” from George Gershwin’s opera, “Porgy and Bess.”

The band will play several sets of selections from Broadway shows, including “Cabaret,” “Chicago,” “The Lion King” and “Beauty and the Beast.” Marches to be played are “March of the Siamese Children” from “The King and I” by Richard Rodgers, “New York Hippodrome” by John Philip Sousa, “On the Hudson” by Edwin Franko Goldman and “Broadway One-Step” by Karl King.
