Take a musical journey with the Palmyra Eagle Community Band for the 2018 summer “Pops” season and “Around the World in 80 Ways.” Hop into our musical travel balloon as we take audiences on a mystical, magical, musical journey from England to India to South America. Our band balloon will then bring us back to America where we will visit “The Big Apple” with a musical salute that runs from Central Park through Lincoln Center to the very streets of New York. Our journey will then take us to the very cradle of American Liberty: Philadelphia and Independence Hall where we will musically meet the people who crafted the Declaration of Independence! Special in-flight offerings will include the music of Henry Mancini, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Richard Rogers and Frank Sinatra. A tribute to the Centennial of the birth of the great American composer Leonard Bernstein will be a special highlight.
Bandmaster Ed Pierce will have his usual flight crew: Jim Neist and the “Kettle Moraine Blues,” sax soloist Ellie Hawes as well as the superb vocal artistry of Kim “Kimbirdlee” Fadner, who will ensure that each musical passenger is properly cared for with the finest music possible. Band dancers Josh & Caitlin Voigt will entertain one and all as they “cut a rug” with music from Dick Clark’s “American Bandstand!” It will be a journey you won’t forget! Pack your bag chair, bring a cooler and enjoy this musical “flight of fancy.” No boarding pass is required! (IT IS ALL FREE!)
