The Lima Area Concert Band brought the sounds of Sousa to the Civic Center Saturday evening (6/16/18).

The band played the classics from the March King in their annual Sounds of Sousa tribute concert. To get feet tapping and the audience humming, they invited Dr. David Kosmyna on the cornet and vocalist Cassie Collins to join them throughout the night, something that is somewhat unique to Sousa's music.

"I think it's not only the marches that he wrote, which we play a bunch of but also he had vocalists and instrumentalists which are very popular with the audience," says conductor John Hill. "It is not common for a concert band, but it's something that Sousa always used in his programs."

The band will perform next on June 24, 2018, at Lakeshore Park in Celina for the Celina Concert Series.
