BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – The Brevard Community Band has selected all of the greatest hits from its repertoire and will perform audience favorites on Sunday, June 5 at Merritt Island High School Auditorium.

The 3:00 p.m. concert will feature a wide variety of works, ranging from traditional Sousa marches to well-known Broadway and movie themes.

Audience favorites will include the marches “El Capitan” and “Liberty Bell” by John Philip Sousa, selections from An American in Paris and Porgy and Bess by George Gershwin, “Seventy-Six Trombones” by Meredith and Wilson, as well as a suite of jazz favorites, movie soundtrack classics and more. Audience favorites are free, with no tickets required and no reserved seats.

Spectators are strongly encouraged to wear face masks while in the auditorium (regardless of their vaccination status), for the safety and health of patrons and musicians.

The oldest band on Florida’s Space Coast, the Community Band of Brevard is led by former military bandleader, Robin Kessler.

Community Band of Brevard bandleader Robin Kessler knows the concert will be another crowd pleaser.

“This concert definitely lives up to its title,” Kessler said.

“Every piece of music we play is a real crowd favourite! If you’re looking for something to lift your spirits, put a smile on your face and get you humming, this is it.

In 1999, the John Philip Sousa Foundation presented the prestigious Sudler Silver Scroll Award to the Community Band of Brevard for “demonstrating particularly high standards of excellence in concert activities over a period of several years”.
