American classics and more in free concert

The College of the Mainland Concert Band will perform a free concert reprising patriotic tunes and movie soundtracks Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the COM Fine Arts Building. 

The group will perform “American Salute,” based on “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” and melodies from Stephen Foster.

“One of the fun pieces for the band is ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ and the Herb Alpert medley will be a crowd pleaser,” said director Sparky Koerner. “Audience members will leave with these tunes in their heads.”

Comprised of community members and COM students, the COM Concert Band gives participants an opportunity to hone and present their skills while entertaining the community.
