Tri-City Voice, June 20, 2006

After the first efforts to form a little over a year ago, the Newark Symphonic Winds are going strong and picking up momentum. The Tri-City area band has now given four concerts in its first full year.

To conclude this season, this group of over 40 musicians will perform their summer concert under the baton of director Kevin Hanson on June 24. They aim to please just as they did in their last performance attended by more than 300 people.

The concert will feature a wide range of styles ranging from Gustav Holst, John Phillip Sousa, and Elvis Presley, among others. There will be bagpipe music and a Special Tribute to Veterans and Service Men and Women. The evening promises to be special and enjoyable for all.
