Memorial Day weekend will kick off with the Greater Cleveland Community Concert Band, bringing favorites from Broadway musicals to the Evening Shade concert series.

The Greater Cleveland Community Band will bring Broadway to Johnston Park for the free Evening Shade Concert Series in the Park Friday, May 24, at 6:30 p.m. These musicians are a collective group of adults who have dusted off their high school and college instruments and reached out to students currently enrolled in area schools to be a part of a community band. 

“The band performs throughout the year in the area,” Kyle Elrod, Evening Shade talent organizer, said. “Their repertoire appeals to a broad audience, and this is their third Evening Shade appearance.” 

Selections from their “Broadway Off Broad Street” show include highlights from Gypsy, by Jule Styne; Guys and Dolls Overture, by Frank Loesser; highlights from The Music Man, by Meredith Willson; Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, arranged by Michael Sweeney; highlights from South Pacific, by Richard Rodgers; Give My Regards to Broadway, by George M. Cohan; and highlights from Fiddler on the Roof, by Jerry Bock.

“Selections from Broadway musicals are always a crowd favorite,” Mr. Elrod said. “This will be a great evening to kick back, relax and begin the holiday weekend.”

Presenting sponsor for the May 24 concert is Garden Plaza at Cleveland.  

The series is made possible each year by the Allied Arts Council of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce. It is funded in part by local sponsors and under an agreement with the Tennessee Arts Commission.

Curiously, when I read over it this past weekend, it dawned on me that if each of us would try to accomplish just 10 items on Mr. Snell’s list ... (click for more)
