The SMC Emeritus College Concert Band will present its Late Spring concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 21. The concert will be held in The Broad Stage at the SMC Performing Arts Center, Santa Monica Boulevard at 11th Street, Santa Monica.
The free concert will feature a selection of exhilarating works sure to please everyone in the family. Ample free parking will be available.
“The concert will pay special tribute to Larry Jacobs,” said Emeritus College Concert Band Conductor Jessica Swift. “Larry played French horn in the group for many years and also assisted with band communications. He will be sorely missed.”
On the program will be a variety of lively repertoire, including Holst’s “Jupiter,” a Glenn Miller Medley, excerpts from The Phantom of the Opera, and more. “There will also be two very special guest conductor appearances,” said Swift. “We hope to see you there!”
