ARLINGTON — The North Cascades Concert Band will be performing “A Tribute to America” at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center in Arlington at 3 p.m. on May 12.
For many years the NCCB has celebrated John Phillip Sousa’s legacy annually by featuring many of his compositions as encores interspersed throughout the program. Arlington’s Rob Pattermann is serving as the newly appointed music director of the NCCB, with Bellingham’s Ray Blank serving as the guest conductor.
Tickets are available at Flowers by George and the Cinderella Styling Salon, as well as at the door. Prices are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, $5 for students and a special price of $5 for mothers in recognition of it being Mother’s Day. Attending mothers will also receive a flower. The Arlington community service groups of Hands Together are co-sponsoring the concert, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting their work.
