Sun Coast Wind Ensemble Presents: “Broadway and the Silver Screen”

The Sun Coast Wind Ensemble (SCWE) will perform a concert entitled “Broadway and the Silver Screen” on Friday, March 22nd at 2 p.m. at SunCoast Cathedral MCC, 3276 E Venice Ave. (intersection of Jackson Rd.), Venice.  Ms. Lynn Cleary is the new director and brings many years of music teaching experience to the ensemble.  This musical journey will take you to places and times of passion, beauty and historical significance.

Featured on the program will be a selection of tunes from the musical, “Miss Saigon.”  This show, based upon Puccini’s opera, “Madame Butterfly,” takes place during the closing days of the Vietnam war and highlights the tragic interaction between an American GI and a Vietnamese bar girl.

On a much lighter note we’ll take a trip to Disney for a visit with Aladdin of magic lamp fame, Ariel the mermaid and the beast who must earn a girl’s love in order to be transformed back into a prince.

The strong themes of “Les Miserables” will be sure to conjure up the images of love amongst political strife in France just after the revolution.

“Dances with Wolves” tells the story of a young soldier in the American west who adopts the ways of Native Americans, falls in love, but must make a profound decision as the wide-open west rapidly disappears.

We are sure you will love these selections and many more as we re-visit the silver screen and Broadway stage.

The Sun Coast Wind Ensemble is comprised of a group of musicians from surrounding towns and counties.  Musicians from Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice, North Port, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Englewood and Arcadia combine their talents to form this talented concert band.

The hall is air conditioned.  Admission to the concert is $5, payable at the door.
