This stop on this year’s “Musical Time Travels” will take us back to 1918. The First World War finally found peace on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the year in 1918. The Denver Concert Band will recognize the heroes of that time, as well as those who have fought for peace in all times, in a musical commemoration of the armistice for what was to be the war to end all wars. The season of peace is also represented with holiday selections that will please both young and old. Of course, no seasonal celebration would be complete without a visit from that jolly elf, Santa Claus…so bring the kids!
The Denver Concert Band will begin their 57th year of performances in the fall of 2018. A 90 piece adult community band of volunteer musicians; they perform year around in the Denver Metro Area and throughout Colorado. Known for their rich sound and delightful variety of music, there is something for everyone in their performances. In recent years the DCB has collaborated with outstanding soloists and ensembles including the Queen City Jazz Band and the Navy Band Northwest. Their summer pops concert season in 2018 was well received and they enjoyed playing a concert at Denver’s new Levitt Pavilion. The DCB enjoys presenting performances in the Lone Tree Arts Center and they're proud of their heritage as one of Colorado’s premier community concert bands.
