Millennium Band to open 15th season

The Lake Oswego Millennium Concert Band will open their 15th year of presenting concerts to the Lake Oswego community Sunday. There is no charge for admission. The program, titled “Tempos, Tangos and Tremors,” will feature classical, modern, swing, marches and a tango.

“A wonderful tango arrangement, called Vientos y Tangos (winds and tangos) is perhaps the favorite of the band members as it is technically demanding, haunting and musically one of the most beautiful selections the band has ever performed,” Director Dale Cleland said. “A few other delightful and fun pieces will round out the program.”

The audience is invited to come early and view art by local artists and listen to the music of the Millennium Woods in the lobby prior to the concert. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Lakeridge High School auditorium, 1235 Overlook Drive, Lake Oswego.
