A medley of Beatles tunes will keep the concert light. Everyone will remember this musical when the band plays “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning” “The Surrey With The Fringe On Top,” and “Okla-homa” The trombone section will be featured playing the cool, swinging tune “Bunch of Bones” and then the full band will play a very challenging arrangement of “Les Misrables” which includes “I Dreamed A Dream,” “Master of the House,” “Do you Hear the People Sing” and others.
