Lucky me! I have tickets for the last performance of the Frank Parsons Big Band that is held in our local theatre. Each year, they perform an eight series program that starts in October and ends in May. Usually the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 2pm. Convenient time for me and it works well with having an early lunch and an early dinner as the performance usually ends around 4:30. I try to keep my schedule open so I do not miss any of their performances.
I buy the season pass early in the year to insure my seat right up in the fourth row. I prefer being close up so I can see their expressions as they concentrate on the music sheets, toot their horn, hit the cymbals, bang the drums. It is fascinating to hear it all come together.
Sometimes, the theme is Broadway tunes or holiday music or St Patrick’s Day. There is a female singer that resembles Jo Stafford from years ago singing “You Belong to Me” and other low key ballads. The afternoon is always enjoyable as I hum quietly to the songs I remember. For sure I will be buying next seasons’ tickets.
