Danville Community Band in Blackhawk

The 85-member Danville Community Band, led by music director and conductor Lawrence Anderson and newly appointed associate director Robert Calonico, will present two concerts in Blackhawk this spring.

"Sounds of the Sixties," at the Blackhawk Museum at 2 p.m., Sunday, March 2, will feature familiar tunes including selections from "Man of LaMancha," and "The Sound of Music," nostalgic music from popular sit-coms, the Beatles "Yellow Submarine," Herb Alpert hits, "Feelings," "People" and much more. The Vivaldi Piccolo Concerto with soloist, Heather Anderson, will highlight this family event, being held in conjunction with the museum's "Sixties" exhibit. Concert is free with museum admission.

Then the band will present music from "Bach to the Beatles" with a sumptuous dinner at the Blackhawk Country Club Lakeside Ballroom on Sunday, April 13. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m.; a no-host bar will open at 6 p.m.; dinner is at 7:30 p.m. The dinner and concert cost $50, and last year it sold out. For reservations, call 736-650, ext. 0.
