I’m going to start off with a number from the Stockton Concert Band’s June 2005 trip to Hawaii. In this clip, you can see us performing in the band shell on the beach in Honolulu. This number is “Harlem Nocturne.” (I am sitting second from the right in the back row on the right side of the screen.) The whole band did not make the trip; we had about 35 musicians playing.
This is the same group with which I am traveling to New York City on March 25, 2007. We will have 110 musicians performing at Carnegie Hall on March 28, 2007. Called the Delta Winds, we will also have a few members of the Lodi Community Band (of which I am also a member), Brentwood Community Band, and some high school students who successfully auditioned playing with us.
Note: This is not a professionally produced video! I filmed this with my little Sony camcorder sitting on the tripod and have not edited or enhanced it in any way.
