Frank Ortega and the members of the Bloomfield Civic Band—including but not limited to the horn section—are hard at work preparing for our Holiday Spectacular concert on Sunday, December 16, at 3:00 p.m. at the Bloomfield Middle School.
The program will feature a satisfying blend of popular and traditional holiday selections; it may even include a march, composed by none other than Edwin Franko Goldman. The band is also rehearsing Max Reger’s “Benedictus,” arranged for concert band by Bloomfield-based composer Allan V. Daleus. Allan himself will conduct the band in the world premiere of this beautiful work.
Mark your calendars and get ready for an afternoon of listening enjoyment and new discoveries.
A big thank you to John Meixner, professional photographer and videographer, for providing some excellent photos and video from our “Winds of Autumn” concert. As soon as we get all of the necessary permissions we will post more photos and links to the video.
