UPDATE: This concert was presented by the Seymour Arts committee. The large audience was very appreciative of the performance and many complimented the conductor on his selections. Mr. Marenghi was dressed as his favorite super hero, Mr. Incredible from the Pixar movie, The Incredibles. Many children came to the concert in costume and excitedly trick or treated after the performance among the members of the band. See the photos that I have added to this post.
The program include:
Music for a Darkened Theater - Elfman
Funeral March for a Marionette - Gounod
Selections from Wicked - Schwartz (yay!)
Harry at Hogwarts - Doyle
Night on Bald Mountain - Mussorgsky
Symphony No. 9 - Dvorak
Pirates of the Caribbean - Badelt
Star Wars Episode III - Williams
Disney at the Movies - arr. by Higgins
Encore: Music from The Incredibles - Giacchino
Save the date: Saturday, December 15 at 7:00 pm
The Naugatuck Community Band returns to the Strand Theater with a holiday concert.
The Naugatuck Community Band, under the direction of Charley Marenghi, will present a concert of Halloween-themed selections in costume.
Mr. Marenghi writes, "Bring your whole family to a free concert with tunes from the Dark Side. Wear your Halloween costume...it will be a scary good time."
Kids should bring their trick-or-treat bags with them.
This concert was supposed to take place last Halloween, but was canceled due to a freak October snow storm. Trust me on this...The medley from Wicked is worth the trip to Seymour.
