5th Sep 2018 Melbourne Municipal Band Launches New Season with “Why So Serious?” Concerts Sep. 19 and 20
MELBOURNE, Fla., August 15, 2018 – The Melbourne Municipal Band (MMB) will kick off its 2018-19 season of Music That Moves You with two concerts that feature tunes with a touch of fun. “Why So Serious?” will be presented September 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the Melbourne Auditorium, 625 E. Hibiscus Blvd. There is no charge and tickets are not required. Suggested donation is $5.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and pre-show entertainment will be provided by MMB’s new Rock & Roll Revue ensemble, playing music from the 1950s and ‘60s.

“Concerts don`t have to be stuffy, formal or boring, especially not when it`s your favorite community band playing,” said Conductor Staci Rosbury. “Cartoon music, clarinets meowing like cats and a tuba solo are just a few examples of what this concert holds in store. You’ll have to join us to find out what else we have up our collective sleeves!”

The concert will also feature the MMB’s Brevard’s Brightest Stars segment. Jádon Brooks, a 17-year-old music major at Eastern Florida State College and accomplished performer, will sing Ol’ Man River and The Impossible Dream.
