Got the Winter Blahs? Plan Your Escape with Dexter Community Band’s Free Concert
Dexter Community Band Director William W. Gourley wanted to chase off the winter blahs. So, he whipped up a concert with strains of Mardi Gras, a Mexican folk song, a Disney getaway, buglers on holiday and even a Spanish bullfight.
As it has throughout this season, the band will be featuring individual members and sections during the concert.
For the winter concert that includes Matteo Carcassi, the band’s principal euphonium. Also featured are several members of the Depot Town Big Band who play with Dexter Community Band: Christopher Balk, tenor and baritone saxophone; Ben Kessler, principal trombone; Neil McKay, principal tuba; and Rich Savitski, principal trumpet.
An expanded DCB percussion section also gets a workout throughout the concert.
Finally, trumpet players Phil Rhodes, Rich Savitski and Todd Nissen will be double-tonguing through the Leroy Anderson classic Bugler’s Holiday.
