October 27 presents an opportunity for everyone to hear some great music and support one our community’s great non-profit organizations. The Old Crown Brass Band is teaming up with Community Harvest Food Bank for a family-friendly event that is sure to impress.
Known for putting on inspiring performances whenever they choose to play, the Old Crown Brass Band is unique in that they are a British-style brass band, meaning that they exclude reed instruments (clarinets and saxophones) while certain brass wind instruments rarely found in other types of bands (flugelhorns, baritone, and tenor horns) are included instead.
The professional musicians from across the tri-state area plan to pull out all the stops for this show as they hope to aid in the cause of raising money for Community Harvest.
The concert will include traditional harvest themed selections as well as a few popular favorites. Some of the selections to be played include “Music for a Festival” and “Barn Dance & Cowboy Hymn” by Philip Sparke, a symphonic rhapsody on “America the Beautiful” called “Amber Waves of Grain,” Meyerbeer’s “Coronation March,” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen.
Community Harvest Food Bank feeds more than 90,000 unique individuals each year in the nine-county northeast Indiana region and 98% of all income raised for the organization goes directly to their hunger relief programs.
The show takes place at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Fort Wayne. It is free and open to the public.
