The North Cascades Concert Band’s Conductor/Music Director, Robert Pattermann, and the NCCB announce that the theme for the fall concert series will be “Music Magic From The Masters.”

The local concert will be presented Dec. 2, beginning at 3 p.m., at Arlington High School’s Byrnes Performing Arts Center at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd.

Pattermann has chosen a variety of selections; marches by Sousa, Beethoven, and Percy Grainger, classics from Bizet and Wagner, and “A Tribute to American Jazz” arranged by Sammy Nestico. The program will also feature several more contemporary choices  to celebrate the “Music Magic From The Masters." The concert will conclude with a few songs of the holiday season.

The concert will also feature the Arlington High School Symphonic Band under the direction of John Grabowski.

Admission to the concerts is free, but all donations are greatly appreciated. Donations go to cover expenses for the concerts and also to provide an annual college scholarship to an area high school senior who plans to pursue a degree in music education .
