The St. Cloud Municipal Band's Nov. 9 concert at the Paramount Theatre in St. Cloud will have an animated feel to it, as they feature music from classic movies and television shows. The performance will have familiar Disney songs, and popular Hanna Barbera numbers as well.
Municipal Band Director Mel Hauck says the concert will have some fun pieces, but there will be more to it than that, "We will feature some great family-oriented songs, but we will have traditional music as well. We want to present a concert that will be enjoyable for all ages." The band will perform selections from Aladdin, Classic Walt Disney movies, and some marches, too.
Hauck said the concert will be both fun and challenging for the group, "The cartoon music is fun to play, but in order to have a rewarding concert for both band members and the audience, we need to perform selections with some meat to them." Some of the more challenging pieces include Toccata Marziale, Elsa's Procession to the Cathedral, and A Festival Prelude.
The concert is 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 9, at the Paramount Theatre in downtown St. Cloud, and is free for all to attend. After the concert, the Municipal Band will be selling their compact disc, "Encore." The disc is the first set of recorded music by the band to be made available to the public. Encore sells for $10 with all proceeds benefiting the Municipal Band.
