The Northwinds Symphonic Band will perform an indoor concert at Sands Point Preserve on June 11 at 3 p.m. The concert will feature a host of treasured music from the big screen to the Broadway stage.
The music comes to Sands Point Preserve with conductor Helen P. Bauer and associate conductor Brandon Bromsey at the podium.
They have programmed an afternoon of music from “West Side Story,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “The Lion King,” and a medley of symphonic marches from prolific composer John Williams.
For this concert, Long Island composer Ray Osnato has transcribed and arranged two pieces from Max Steiner’s original score from the movie “King Kong.”
The band will also showcase three Gershwin classics, performed by Broadway actress Karen Murphy, and feature two pieces where percussion instruments take center stage: one starring a typewriter and the other, a virtuoso performance on xylophone.
Consider bringing a picnic lunch to enjoy on the Preserve’s majestic grounds before the concert. The indoor concert will take place rain or shine.
Tickets for the concert are $10 per person, and non-members must pay a $15 parking fee. Tickets are available on the day of the performance, cash only.
