32nd alumni band spring concert set for Saturday night

Can't get tickets to see the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra for the gala re-opening fundraiser at the Sunnybrook Ballroom on Saturday night, but are looking to hear some good music?

Well, you can head to Boyertown for the 32nd annual spring concert of the Boyertown Alumni Marching Unit.

Among the selections are "Gavorkna Fanfare," "When Johnny Comes Marching Home," "Rock Legends: The Association," "The Fairest of the Fair," "Holiday for Trombones" and "Tijuana Brass in Concert."

The first half of the concert will also include "A Mourning Remembered: Movement 1," a piece written for the 100th anniversary of the 1908 Rhoads Opera House fire in Boyertown in which 171 people were killed.

The second half of the concert will preview the marching unit's trip to Boston on July 3-6.

The concert will be at 7 p.m. at Boyertown Junior High West, 2nd and Madison streets. Tickets are $5 for adults. Children 6-and-under are admitted free.
