The Woodland Community Band and River City Concert Band will present their annual Spring Concert at 7 p.m. Monday at the Woodland Community and Senior Center, 2001 East St. in Woodland. Both the concert and parking are free.

The conductors for the popular double bill are Bobby Rogers, music director at Pioneer High School, conducting the Woodland Community Band, and Tom Seaton, also from Woodland, leading the River City Concert Band.

The evening opens with the River City Concert Band playing “From the Mountaintops” by Christopher J. Tootle, “River Trail Expedition” by Robert Sheldon, “Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines,” “What I Did For Love,” “The Lady of the Golden Gate” by Richard Frazier, “Band of Brothers,” “Instant Concert” and “To The Max” arranged by Robert W. Smith.

Larry Womac, band narrator, will announce the pieces.

The Woodland Community Band then takes the stage with a variety of popular selections, including “American in Paris” by George Gershwin and “The Gallant Seven” by march king John Philip Sousa. Classical selections include “First Suite in E flat” written for military band by Gusgtav Holtz and “Lincoln Portrait” by 20th century composer Aaron Copland.

This piece includes the narrated portrait of Lincoln quoting from the Emancipation Proclamation and his Gettysburg Address. Delivering the narration is Bill Hollingshead, a Woodland native and clarinetist with the band.

With the two bands consisting of both brass and woodwinds, no program is complete without a rousing and soul-stirring march. Therefore in the finale, the two bands join forces with “The Melody Shop” by Karl King.

The Woodland Community Band was established in September 2005 by Rogers as a way to give members of the community an opportunity to share music.

“The Community Band is a band of all ages and all musicians are welcome to join,” Rogers said. “We have current members from Davis, Woodland, Dixon, Winters, Esparto, Yuba City and Sacramento.”

Rehearsals run from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays in the band room at Pioneer High School, 1400 Pioneer Ave. in Woodland. For more information or to join, contact Bobby Rogers at 530-406-1148, ext. 4523, or [email protected].
