Severna Park High Marching Band concert tonight


May 19, 1994|By JONI GUHNE

We're off!

Central County is about to enter the last month of organized frenzy before the summer lull, or as we in the business like to call it, the Final Four.

A free spring concert will be presented at 7:30 tonight by the Severna Park High School Marching Band.

Although the performance is in the auditorium, it will include all the highlights of a field show: state champion Drum Major Corey Poorman, the state champion Band Front/Flag Line and the band's popular version of "Phantom of the Opera," all directed by R. Thomas Powell.

The Belvedere Elementary School Band, under the direction of Bill Sharkey, and the Belvedere Flag Team will make a guest appearance.

Information: 544-0900.


And speaking of award winners, a toot of the horn to the 71-member Archbishop Spalding High School Band.

The group recently took first place in a 22-band competition, "Music in the Parks," at Hershey Park, Pa.
