The Delta Music Makers Concert Band from Ladner will be performing a stylish, exciting performance at Harrison Hot Springs Resort in the Conference Center at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 23.
This 40-piece community band is well known in the lower mainland, not only for their busy concert schedule, but also as hosts of the Ladner Bandfest, a festival for community bands, which took place on June 9 and 10. The band will regale the audience with movie themes, folk music, solo features, concert marches, and other tuneful styles.
The concert line up for Saturday is I Believe (the Vancouver Games theme), Seventy Six Trombones, The Mask Of Zorro (movie music), Great Waldo Pepper March, Gabriel’s Oboe (solo feature), Tijuana Brass In Concert, Mancini (a medley of his works), Mountain Dance (folk music), Les Miserables (featuring vocalist), and Funiculi Funicula a fast-paced exciting finish.
The Delta Music Makers have performed throughout B.C. and have made the occasional trip abroad, such as to the UK, Europe, and the USA. Their latest foreign performance was last September, where they gave rousing concerts in Washington DC, New York City, and Boston as a 10-year memorial tribute to the victims of 9/11.
