Tuesday is the deadline for filing 2017 income tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service and Wisconsin Department of Revenue. And now that that’s out of the way …
The Algoma Community Band and The Lakeshore Singers will present an After Taxes concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, in the Performing Arts Center at Algoma Elementary School. 514 Fremont St. Tom Mueller directs the band; David Robertson directs The Lakeshore Singers.
The Community Band starts the concert with a British Eighth March followed by some favorite and well-known pieces. “Bugler’s Holiday,” typically a trumpet trio, will be featured by a trombone trio: Bob Ryan, David Hansell, and Brandon Bair. Other marches, a polka arranged by Dave Kopetsky, and a musical, “Oliver,” will be featured.
Two retirees will be honored: Rosie Meyer and Pat LeBotte. A raffle drawing for a free trip for two to either London or Paris will take place before the end of the concert. Raffle tickets will be sold before the concert and during intermission.
The Lakeshore Singers open with “It’s A Grand Night for Singing”. This group of singers may be small in number but they are mighty in voice. One of the favorite songs and perhaps the one that took more rehearsing is “Wanting Memories” from Crossings, by Ysaye M. Barnwell. Dr. Barnwell is a cancer patient who has chosen to move forward with her life. This song weaves the stories of memories, music, and life together.
After all the shoveling and dealing with an “April snowstorm,” organizers say this concert will be a breath of fresh air that definitely will put a “spring” in your step.
