Greenville Municipal Concert Band to present ‘The Grand Finale’


Staff report



GREENVILLE – The final performance of the Greenville Municipal Concert Band will take place the Sunday at the Marling Band Shell located in the Greenville City Park.

The concert will begin at the special time of 7 p.m. and will be conducted by JR Price.

The Grand Finale show will pay tribute to great Marling Band Shell. The Band Shell has been the home for park concerts since 1934. The shell is scheduled to be torn down this year and a brand new one is going to built for our concert season next summer.

The guest performer with the band this week is Mrs. Chelsea Whirledge.

“Chelsea is a very talented singer and a native of Greenville,” said Price.

She is currently the high school vocal music director for the Greenville City School District. She is a graduate of Ball State University and currently in her third year in Greenville.

“We are proud to have Chelsea sing with the band on great music such as I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables and two beautiful Irish arias You Raise Me Up from Josh Groban and The Blessing form Celtic Woman,” said Price.

The Greenville Municipal Concert Band will perform the march His Honor by Fillmore, Procession of the Nobles and the standard Beguine for Band. A special tribute will be played to the band shell with a special presentation of Dusk by Steven Bryant. The band will also perform Across the Field and Hang on Sloopy to get you ready for the upcoming football season.

The concerts in the park are free of charge and plenty of seating is available at the band shell. You are also welcome to bring folding chairs or a blanket to sit and enjoy our final show of the season. Please make plans to join us this Sunday at 7 p.m. for our Grand Finale show by the Greenville Municipal Concert Band.
