Mount St. Mary Academy will host a Fall Concert and Italian Dinner on Saturday, October 26. Featured performers include The Buffalo Silver Band, The Erie County Wind Ensemble and the school’s Jazz Ensemble, Concert Band and Dance Team.
The concert starts at 7 p.m. in our Auditorium with a fashion show by OOO La La Boutiques.
The Buffalo Silver band, playing at 7:30 p.m., maintains the British-style tradition in its instrumentation and music. Except for percussion, the band is composed entirely of brass instruments. The British style band differs from an American brass band mainly in that its use of cornets and Eb alto horns rather than trumpets and French horns. The resulting sound is a bit warmer and darker than the brighter American sound. Comprised of 25 to 30 brass players (and three percussionists), the band’s repertoire includes traditional marches, popular songs, jazz, light classical music and more serious works expressly for the brass band genre.
Mount St. Mary Academy’s award-winning musical groups will feature many show tunes, as well as light music for the season. The Dance Team will be featured in up tempo selections for their first indoor performance of the year.
The Italian Dinner will be held in the school cafeteria starting at 5:00 p.m.
Dinner features an all-you-can-eat spaghetti and meatball meal, including salad, bread and butter, coffee, tea and lemonade. Homemade desserts will be available for purchase.
Tickets for this event are available in advance for $10.00 by calling the school at 877-1358 or Band Director John Hathaway at 689-1100. Tickets will also be sold at the door for $14. Children under 10 are $5.
All proceeds from this concert will benefit the purchase of new musical instruments.
This event is co-sponsored by Northtown Lexus, River Grill Restaurant, Banchetti Restaurant, Maple Entertainment Complex and Aye Coach Lines.
