Wes King, band director, will conduct the band in a concert full of familiar music. Some titles to be performed include:
- “Seventy Six Trombones” (1957/97) by Meredith Wilson, arr. Bocook

“The overarching theme for this year is familiarity,” King said. One of the things King found with his students, is that they were craving familiarity in these unusual times. “We want to share the comfort of familiar songs with people as we are navigating strange times,” he explained. This concert of popular songs is sure to leave spectators feeling happy, hopeful, and humming along.
