The HJ Crosby Community Band of Dexter will perform on April 13, 2014, at the Dexter Town Hall at 2 PM. This cabaret concert will be open to the public; bring your own food or eat what we will provide and just sit back and enjoy an hour of music with us. Admission will be a small paper bag for an audience participation number with the band.
Our musical numbers will cover a large range of genre and time periods. Besides the HJ Crosby march Dress Parade, the band will also perform In a Rose Garden, a rare waltz composed by our namesake and Dexter native, Harold Josiah Crosby. Other numbers will include a little dance music, Blue Tango; some show tunes, Cabaret, Man of La Mancha, and The Phantom of the Opera; and some fun favorites, Dry Bones (with a little anatomy lesson before hand by our own Dr. Pierce), Irish Legends, In the Good Old Days, and It’s a Most Unusual Day, plus a few surprise pieces. The concert will end with a little help from the audience, adding the paper bag admission to the 1812 Overture, as the city codes prevent us from real cannons inside the Town Hall.
The Dexter Brass Ensemble will play a Pre-concert as the audience gathers, but you won’t want to miss their portion, so come early. And, of course, we must endure the conductor’s repertoire of “bad jokes,” though we hear he has acquired a new joke book.
So if you’re tired of the snow and cold of a long winter, join the HJ Crosby Community Band of Dexter in welcoming and celebrating the return of spring on April 13, 2014, at 2 PM at the Dexter Town … and remember, admission is only a small paper bag (or a small balloon can be substituted for the paper bag).
