Symphonic Band performs at Buttermilk Wednesday

3:38 PM, Jun. 13, 2013  |  Comments

The Fond du Lac Symphonic Band will open its 25th season at the Buttermilk Performance Center in Fond du Lac with a concert on Wednesday, June 19 at 7:15 p.m.

The Symphonic Band is in its 40th year, under the direction of Ray C. Wifler, assisted by Dale Shipe and Jill Wagner.

The program will feature tenor David Hein singing Copacabana and I Write the Songs, and tuba soloist Jill Wagner will perform the James Curnow Fantasia for Tuba and Concert Band. Hein is on the music faculty at Marian University and director of the Fond du Lac Children's Chorale. Wagner is the band director at Theisen Middle School.

The band will perform a medley of Henry Mancini hits, along with the music of Saint-Saens, Grainger, and J. S. Bach. Rounding out the concert fare are two stirring Sousa marches: The Black Horse Troop and King Cotton.

Upcoming on the schedule at Buttermilk Creek Park is the ever-popular Dorf Kapelle on June 26; and the Disciples of Dixieland on July 3.

A food concession serving sandwiches, soda and desserts, is available each Wednesday beginning at 6 p.m. In the event of unsuitable weather, concerts will be moved to the Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds and announcements made on local radio stations.

While all Buttermilk Festival concerts are free of charge, free-will offerings are received to help defray costs.

For further information on the Festival, visit the Band's Website at www.fdlsymphonicband.org
