You are invited to Tosaband’s 4th performance this season which highlighs great American works, Nelhybel’s Trittico, Gould’s American Salute, and Copland’s Lincoln Portrait with narration by the beloved Gladys Chmiel. The saxes are also performing the Barnum and Bailey March written by Karl King.
Scratch that crazy itch and get yourself some Wauwatosa Community Band Spirit… (otherwise you’ll have to wait until Fall for another performance by the best band in the land). Come for music. Come for fun. Come for cookies! Yes, there will be a reception following the concert in the lobby.
Admission is the usual, $5 for Adults and $3 for Kids and Seniors. We will be performing in the Longfellow Middle School Auditorium. For directions or additional information, see our About page.
