The sound of music makes an old heart swell. It lifts us up to some
enchanted land and gifts us with a lovely, magic spell,
As heart and mind enjoy the Concert Band.
The mind remembers old songs note by note while heart just feels
emotion leaping ’round.
And as the music lets our spirits float, from all our earthly trials we’re unbound.
Whatever we must do to carry on-to show our love and demonstrate
a skill we’ll do until we’re stilled and music’s gone. For when we played
there was no greater thrill. No moment when we could not understand the joy of music played in Concert Band!
