The Cereal City Concert Band will be performing their Winter concert, “Putting It Together” on Sunday, February 23, 2020, at 3:00pm at the Pennfield Performing Arts Center, 8587 Pennfield Rd, Battle Creek. This concert includes a special guest soloist, Ben Schmidt-Swartz who did his undergraduate studies in saxophone at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, and while there played with some of the world’s leading jazz musicians and performed at numerous jazz festivals throughout the country. He is currently teaching and performing locally in the Kalamazoo area. The theme of this concert reflects the puzzling nature of how music works. What the audience hears as a total and finished product is actually the piecing together of many smaller and intricate melodies, countermelodies, and rhythms to create the whole. Tickets are at the door: $10 for Adults and $5 for Students & Seniors +65. There will also be a 50/50 raffle.
