One Wednesday a month until May I will be treated to the Frank Parsons Big Band concert. It is held at the RIchey Suncoast Theatre in Fl. This is my fourth year as a season ticket holder and I just love singing along with the older tunes of yest-er year, and amazed I still know the words.
Today’s program featured songs of the Fall and the lead trombonist Fred was awesome, as always. We also had a new sax player that filled me with endearment. There is something “magical” about the sound of a good saxophonist. Next month will be highlights of Autumn, college songs perhaps some coming holiday tunes. I am looking forward to the George Gershwin program in a few months. It is a wonderful way to spend an inexpensive afternoon hearing talent from our community. Age wise, I would guess no one is under 55, but their spirit is that of a teenager. Some of the musicians have played all their lives and some only as a hobby, collectively they are a joy to hear.
