The Suncoast Concert Band always enjoys performing. You can see it on their faces. Part of the reason might be the spirited artistic direction from conductor Tak Maeda who believes in having fun. It could also be because of the selection of popular music that the audience enjoys. The April 29 concert in Sechelt was no exception. The first half featured energetic pieces such as Procession of the Nobles by Rimsky-Korsakov, while during the second half the band exchanged their concert blacks for colourful Hawaiian shirts to perform music from such shows as Mary Poppins and West Side Story. The Band’s next appearance is on Canada Day, and meanwhile, another member of the Sunshine Coast Community Orchestra family, the Coast Chamber Strings, will perform on Saturday, May 12 at 2:30 p.m. at the Sechelt Indian Band Hall.
