Conductors’ Corner

Posted by:

This year for the Plano Community Band will be an exciting one. We have the opportunity to perform for an entirely new audience for the PCB as well as performing with new and returning guest artists.

The next big indoor concert is on May 4th, 2014 at the Eisemann Center in Richardson. The concert is at a different time than in the past as we will start at 7 PM. We are excited about our guest artist for this concert, Drew Lang. Drew is a percussionist with the Dallas Opera Orchestra, Ft. Worth Symphony and the Dallas Wind Symphony. He is on the percussion faculty at SMU and is the principal percussionist for the summer Breckenridge Music Festival. He is an internationally known marimba soloist and will be sharing his talents with us on several pieces on May 4th. There is even one work that will feature Drew along with our talented percussion section.

Our summer concert series will begin June 2nd and will be near downtown Plano at Haggard Park. The Summer Concerts start at 7 PM and last a little over an hour. Bring your friends, blankets, lawn chairs, and a picnic dinner and enjoy the evening with the PCB. The Kid’s Concert will be June 16th, and a special Patriotic Concert will be held on July 3rd.

We look forward to you joining us.
