A Kaleidoscope of Color


OCTOBER 10, 2023

“Music gives color to the air of the moment”—Karl Lagerfeld

Fall is a great time for changing colors, gathering the harvest, enjoying abundance,

and enjoying some exuberant band music!

The concert band celebrates the season’s return with an exciting line-up featuring

a colorful palette of musical sounds. The concert is scheduled on Tuesday, October

10, at 7pm at New Covenant United Methodist Church, 3470 Woodridge Dr,

The Villages, FL 32162.

Conductor Jean Butler says the concert’s repertoire is a harmonious blend

of different musical styles—including some from other countries. She named the

concert, A Kaleidoscope of Color. It’s interesting to note the titles on the program

include different colors. Examples include the following: “The Wearing of the Green”,

“Blue Tango”, and ”Black Horse Troop”.

As the concert progresses, other color patterns come into focus with the band’s performance of the nostalgic classic, “Autumn Leaves”. Other compositions and arrangements are Jack Bullock’s “The Golden Eagle (El Aguila de Oro)” and Strauss’

“Blue Danube (An Der schönen balun Donau)”. The program concludes with a patriotic march, “Our own Red, White, and Blue”.

Invite your friends to come with you to enjoy the band’s lively Fall concert. The $15

tickets are available through the band’s website or at the door of the event.

Doors open at 6:30 pm. For those who prefer to arrive with tickets, the following

it is imperative to have full attendance at rehearsals.

We all know that there are very good reasons why people are not able to attend every rehearsal

and those reasons are respected; however, the following guidelines have been established to insure the highest level of performance that we

can possibly achieve.
