Brazosport College and Community Band

The Brazosport College Department of Music will celebrate Presidents Day by hosting a free concert by the College and Community Band on Monday, February 19th at 7:30 p.m. under the direction of Brian Casey. This event will be held in The Clarion, located just east of the main building at 500 College Drive, Lake Jackson.

This concert will feature a diverse mix of patriotic music including:

The Washington Post March – John Philip Sousa’s 2nd most popular march.  It was written to celebrate an essay contest sponsored by the newspaper of the same name.  In the late 1800s, this march was often used as a dance for the popular “two-step.” 

American Pageant – This medley was written for president Nixon’s inauguration in 1973, and it has been performed at every inauguration since that time.  America, Yankee Doodle, Battle Hymn of the Republic, Dixie, America The Beautiful, and Columbia: The Gem of the Ocean are melodies that are permanent reminders of our heritage.   

America’s Finest – A spirited Armed Forces tribute, arranged by Jay Bocook.

American Salute – Morton Gould composed this set of variations on the Civil War tune: When Johnny Comes Marching Home in 1943.  The original piece has been performed and recorded by major orchestras.

The Ultimate Patriotic Sing-Along – We will encourage crowd participation, as band member Zach Zarate leads the audience in several familiar patriotic tunes.

The Stars and Stripes Forever – John Philip Sousa’s most popular composition, this is the National March of the United States of America.  A great way to end any concert!
