Marshall Rotary Band • July 23

Marshall Rotary Band Performs July 23, 2017, at 6 PM

It gets harder and harder every year to find traditional concert band performances as more and more bands stop performing but the Marshall Rotary Band keeps going strong!  The Marshall Rotary Band plays a variety of music including show tune medleys, marches, ragtime, Dixieland, and traditional concert band pieces. The band puts on six concerts each year and for the past few years have included a performance in Albion for one of their concerts.  This year, the band will be led by Ed Zentera and the concert will include not only pieces performed by the whole band but also pieces performed by a french horn quartet and trumpet quartet. One of the highlights is SURE to be their performance of the British Eight by Zo Elliott for all the Albion College students and alumni in the audience.  

For more information about the Marshall Rotary Band visit their website.
