Dances and fantasies with the Beaverton Community Band
Beaverton Community's Band's planned "Dances and Fantasies" concert this weekend has something for the young and the not so young alike.
The concert is set for Sunday, June 10 at Bethel Congregational United Church of Christ, 5150 S.W. Watson Ave., from 3 to 5 p.m.
Officials with the band say the concert is "a salute to the great composers that influenced Academy Award-winning movies, famous Broadway composers and musical journeys of the world of dance."
The concert will include selections from "Lawrence of Arabia," "The Lord of the Rings," "The Man from Snowy River" and several classical pieces, including George Gershwin's "Second Prelude" and Clifton Willaims' "Symphone Dance No. 3."
"Our Theme, 'Dances and Fantasies,' will take the listener to the sands of Arabia in the 1920s, to the Bush Country of Australia, to the Grand 19th Century palaces of Italy, to the Lothlorien Forest of Middle Earth, and to the lower east-side of New York City in the 1920s through the 1950s."
This concert is free to attend but, attendees are encouraged to make donations to assist with the many causes Bethel Congregational United Church supports.
The Beaverton Community Band is under the direction of Martin Sobelman. The band has been performing for more than 30 years. The band plans several summer engagements throughout the area.
