Band concert to feature 75 student musicians

June 29, 1993

The eighth annual Western Maryland College Summer Band Camp Concert, featuring 75 middle and high school student musicians from schools across Maryland, will be held in the college's Decker College Center Forum at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.

The concert, which will include several contemporary selections and an audience participation number, is free and open to the public.

At 7 p.m. Friday in the Forum, band campers and staff members will present a talent show including comedy skits and music. Like the concert, it is free and open to the public.

The concert follows a week of practice sessions with camp leader Gary Green, the newly appointed band director at the University of Miami. Mr. Green leads the young musicians through exercises designed to improve their musical skills.

At the end of the week, the classes will join to perform several selections in a concert setting. The July 3 performance will include the theme music from the television series "Dinosaurs," "Freelance March" by John Philip Sousa, "Midway March" by John Williams, "Aquarium" by Norwegian composer Johann DeMeij, "Cajun Folk Songs" by Frank Paichelli and "Voodoo" by Daniel Buckvich.
