The Southern Highlands Concert Band presents “Americana”- a concert celebrating the musical energy of a hybrid nation of migrants, refugees, slave and indigenous peoples which found expression in many new and exciting musical forms. We have included iconic compositions that pay tribute to the many great composers and performers of American music which will reflect the diversity and significance of globally adopted genres such as the blues, spirituals, jazz, musical theatre and rock ‘n’ roll.
Our audience will enjoy well-known compositions from Stephen Foster, George Gershwin, John Philip Sousa, Leonard Bernstein among others, as well as songs associated with legendary performers, such as Doris Day, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. “Americana” is a concert of barnstorming showstoppers and rousing melodies that will provide a fitting salute to America’s enormous contribution to world music.
