The Denver Concert Band's spring theme features “Suites and Sweets”: suites of music that have thrilled audiences for centuries, and their “sweet” young soloist. Some of the best-known suites for concert band were composed by Gustav Holst. His “Second Suite in F” features beautiful themes from English folk songs, jigs, and marches that get toes tapping, hearts swelling and maybe even elicit a tear or two. The “sweet” part of the concert refers to the outstanding high school musician who wins the band’s annual young artist competition. We are invariably wowed by the winner’s mature musicality and technical prowess! You are invited to join the band for more “sweets” at the winner’s post-concert reception. Come out for fine music by famous composers with a fabulous soloist and the Denver Concert Band.   

2020 will be the 59th year that since the Denver Concert Band began performing concerts for Denver and Surrounding communities. A community band of 90 volunteer musicians, the DCB performance concerts year around in the Denver Metro Area and throughout Colorado. Known for their uniquely sonorous bass, powerful brass, sparkling woodwinds and dynamic percussion, their concert repertoire has something for everyone. The DCB has performed in Europe and at several music conventions as well as neighboring states.
 
Within the DCB is a group called the Show and Tell Band, (SATB) that performs throughout the school year in schools, senior living and a variety of other events. The principal focus of the SATB is to educate people from kindergarten to seniors about band instruments and music. The DCB is thrilled to be returning to the Lone Tree Arts Center for their formal concerts again this year, and they look forward to performing exciting concerts for their patrons.
 
Information about the Denver Concert Band can be found on their website.
