PSC Fall Band Concert

On Sunday afternoon on December 6, the College Band and the Hoyt Street Jazz Ensemble entertained an appreciative crowd in the Peru State College Theater on an otherwise miserable day of chill and then snow, a harbinger of the blizzard that hit Tuesday.

The hearty who weathered the chill enjoyed a special treat, for the College Band and the Hoyt Street Jazz Ensemble warmed thing up quickly.

The College Band opened the program, and I recorded for your listening and viewing pleasure their spirited rendition of "They Went ThataWay," a medley of great music from Westerns, including "How the West Was Won."

Then the Hoyt Street Jazz Band took the stage and helped everyone forget longer the nasty weather.

I recorded two of their excellent offerings, "Song For My Father" and Michael Jackson's "Thriller."

And for your viewing fun, I posted quite a few photographs from

the afternoon performances.

Next up: Madrigal Dinner Friday and Saturday evenings, December 11 and 12.

If you want to listen to more, tune in to last year's Fall Band Concert. And enjoy these stills from Sunday's concert.

Bill: As always your photographic talents take my breath away. Thank you for the band concert coverage. I wasn't able to attend the concert as planned. So it was a treat to have your pictures & video. The music department owes you big time for your preserving and promoting their talents.
