The Woodland Community Band will perform a patriotic salute, “Gettysburg at One Hundred and Fifty Years,” at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Pioneer High School Auditorium, 1400 Pioneer Ave. in Woodland. KCRA Channel 3 sportscaster Del Rodgers will recite President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation during the performance of Aaron Copland’s “Lincoln Portrait.”

Tickets are $8 general and $5 for students, available at the door.

” ‘The Gettysburg Salute’ is a onetime engagement brought to you by the Pioneer High School history and music departments and the Woodland Community Band,” Woodland Community Band director Bobby Rogers said.

Rogers collaborated with Pioneer High School history teacher Greg Hill, who said, “ ‘Gettysburg at One Hundred and Fifty Years’ is an artistic tribute to the rebirth of our nation. You will experience a unique concert in memory of a moment of truth. This celebration is an amazing story set to music, put to words and strikingly illustrated.”

Hill will do history lead-in narrations to musical selections “The Blue and The Gray,” a Civil War suite; “High Water Mark: The Third Day,” referring to Gettysburg in 1863; and “A Movement For Rosa,” a salute to civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks.

“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.”

The band practices from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays in the Pioneer High School band room. For more information, contact Bobby Rogers at 530-406-1148, ext. 4523, or Robert.rogers@wjusd.org.
