Memorial Hall to Present Free Concert
Featuring a Spring Performance by the Queen City Concert Band
OVER-THE-RHINE – The century old Hamilton County Memorial Hall will host a free, family-friendly concert on Saturday, May 4, 2013, at 2:00pm featuring the Queen City Concert Band.
The event will showcase a variety of popular selections, including: Paul Dukas‘ playful symphonic poem The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Gustav Holst’s English folk amalgam Second Suite in F for Military Band, Leonard Bernstein’s operettic musical masterpiece Overture to Candide, Miklós Rózsa’s magnificent Roman march Parade of the Charioteers (from the Ben Hur Movie Soundtrack), Paul Desmond’s jazzy metric quintuple Take Five (in honor of the late Dave Brubeck), and many others.
Following the program, a complementary cookie and punch reception will be held in the Hall’s beautiful ParkView Room.
People in attendance who wish to explore the amazing and historic Hamilton County Memorial Hall building, will be encouraged to do so.
“Spring is here and so are the rediscovered treasures of Over-the-Rhine. Like its historic architecture, its newly-energized public park, and the sound of music everywhere,” extols associate conductor Steve Joos. “We hope everyone will plan on bringing their family and friends to Memorial Hall and share this special afternoon of entertainment with our band.”
Memorial Hall is on Elm Street, at the heart of Washington Park, in Over-the-Rhine. Convenient paid parking is available in the Central System lot, immediately adjacent to Memorial Hall, and nearby in the newly opened Washington Park Garage.
