SMC Emeritus College Band To Present Free Concert This Sunday, Nov. 2:

The SMC Emeritus College Band will present a concert at 2 pm this Sunday, Nov. 2. The concert will be held in The Broad Stage at the SMC Performing Arts Center, Santa Monica Boulevard at 11th Street, Santa Monica.

The concert is free and ample free parking will be available.

The band’s lively program will feature tunes from “Oklahoma,” Erickson’s “Symphony for Band,” and Gliere’s “Russian Sailors Dance,” as well as some traditional marches, and even a taste of Gershwin and Bach. With such a variety of repertoire, there will be something to satisfy all musical palettes!

“We have musicians ranging from high-school students to grandparents, so the variety of musical – and life – experience that each band member brings to the group fuels an environment of inspiration,” said Emeritus College Band conductor Jessica Swift. “It’s a privilege to work with these musicians! And new members are always welcome.”

The Emeritus College Band has thrilled listeners with its free concert series since 1979. The 60-member concert band under the direction of Jessica Swift is part of SMC’s acclaimed Emeritus College, established in 1975 to offer classes and special programs to older adults.
