The Woodland Community Band will present a spring concert with the River City Concert Band at 7 p.m. Monday, May 21, at the Woodland Community and Senior Center, 2001 East St.

Admission is free.

Each band will perform several selections and then the two bands will join to play one piece — “March Royale” by John Dupuis — together.

Woodland Community Band’s program will include “Barnum and Bailey’s Favorite” by Karl King; “Cullodden III,” a Scottish-sounding piece named after the Battle of Cullodden, by Julie Giroux; “But Not For Me,” a swing tune by George and Ira Gershwin; “Flight of Fancy,” featuring a flute solo, by Timothy Johnson; “Esprit de Corps” by Robert Jager; “March of the Belgian Paratroopers” by Pierre Leemans; and “Black Granite III” by James Hosay.

The Woodland band, established in 2005, is under the direction of Robert Rogers, who also serves as music director at Pioneer High School. Band members range from high school students to retirees living in Yolo County and the surrounding region.

The group practices from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays in the band room at Pioneer High School, 1400 Pioneer Ave., Woodland.

To join, or for more information, contact Rogers at (530) 406-1148, ext. 4523, or [email protected], or visit http://woodlandcommunityband.com.
