Civil War Union brass band to perform
LB CITY COLLEGE
The Long Beach City College Evening Wind Symphony and Band of the California Battalion, a fully reenacted Civil War Union Brass Band, will be featured in a special holiday concert on Monday, Dec. 12, at 7 p.m. in Clubhouse 4.
The Wind Symphony is under the direction of Dr. Gary Thomas Scott, retired dean of the School of Creative Arts and Applied Sciences at Long Beach City College.
A wonderful program is planned that includes marches, holiday music, period music and a few surprises.
The Band of the California Battalion will provide an entertaining and informative program of music from the period when “instruments had character and characters had instruments.”
The band is celebrating 30 years as an ensemble and has toured all over the country providing living history presentations, concerts, reenactments and special performances at festivals and venues throughout California and around the country.
This concert is always a crowd pleaser at Leisure World and features something to be enjoyed by all.
Admission is free.
