music
One of our band members described the music we play with the adjective "toe-tapping." It is that and more. There are the John Philip Sousa marches, to be sure, but we also perform John Williams' music as well as that by Cole Porter and by Leroy Anderson. Included in our offerings one will find renditions of old favorites arranged for Mannheim Steamroller and a medley of the British rock-pop group Queen. Play lists for the various concerts back to the 2007 season can be found below.
