Oskaloosa City Band set to perform on Thursday

OSKALOOSA — The Oskaloosa City Band will perform tonight at 8 p.m. on the city square. This week’s marches include: Karl King’s “Imperial,” John Philip Sousa’s “El Capitan,” and Henry Fillmore’s “The Klaxon.”

The band will play “People Will Say We’re In Love” from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “Oklahoma.” Concert goers will hear a variety of tunes from Disney movies in a medley of four tunes from three movies. Listeners will also hear a catchy tune originally recorded by The Beatles.

The trumpet section will be featured in a tune entitled “Travelin’ Trumpets.” Don’t worry — they aren’t leaving, but the tune does move along quickly.

This week’s “fiery overture based on a western theme” is entitled “Along the Santa Fe Trail.” As the song progresses, listeners may feel as if they’re rolling along in a covered wagon and experiencing the beautiful vistas at the tops of mountains.

Each week, the band plays a special song for birthday and anniversary celebrations. Those who have someone they would like to recognize on Thursday night, hand a note to the director or another band member before the concert.

Last week, the band played a new tune that is sure to become a new tradition each week. Those who missed last week’s concert will likely recognize the tune as the one played at the end of “The Lawrence Welk Show” each week.
