Beat Meets Heat. Neat.

Director George W. Jones
From 2010 08 Richardson Band

The temperature was 104° but that didn't stop the Richardson Community Band from playing their regularly scheduled outdoor concert Sunday night on the Fountain Plaza by the library. The music lovers who brought their lawn chairs and blankets were treated to a program of "Conductor's Choice", including two more Sousa marches (the 93rd and 94th played by the band while under the decades-long direction of George W. Jones), the always inspiring Battle Hymn of the Republic, an unusual arrangement of 76 and a Half Trombones, Rushmore and other musical selections that had the crowd tapping their feet and forgetting about the heat.

Come on out for the season finale on August 15 at 7:00 PM. The heat wave will have to be over by then, right?
