President’s Day concert set for Feb. 17 at The Clarion

The Brazosport College Department of Music will present a President’s Day concert featuring the College and Community Band on Feb. 17 at The Clarion at Brazosport College.

The band will be under the direction of Richard Birk and the concert begins at 7:30 p.m. The performance is free to the public.

Retired BC history professor Dr. Paul Pedisich will narrate the concert and BC percussion instructor Charles Fricker will be guest conductor on two selections.

George Washington’s Birthday Party – a two-step published in 1899 by legendary march composer C.L. Barnhouse
My Pals – an original march by community band member George St. George honoring his grandchildren
