Fall 2011 Band Concert
On Sunday afternoon, December 4, the Peru State College Concert Band and the Hoyt Street Jazz Ensemble entertained an appreciative audience in the College Theater.
The Concert Band offered a challenging program, and you can enjoy one of the numbers on You Tube, "Fortress."
The difficulty of Saturday's program attests to how much this band has grown and improved over the past four years.
The Hoyt Street Jazz Ensemble continues to entertain throughout the school year.
The group offered an exciting selection of numbers that included "Hold On, I'm Coming," a song that featured the voice of Xavier Gibson.
I also recorded the group's final selection, "Chicken," which includes solos by pretty much everyone in the band.
