Gateway Concert Band performs 'Summer Follies'

The Gateway Concert Band will present its second concert of the summer season, "Summer Follies," at 7  p.m. Monday at Rotary Centennial Park.

If the weather is too cool or too wet, the show will shift to the Enumclaw High School auditorium.

The program will feature music suited for a summer evening, including local clarinet soloist Ruth (Bearscove) Orozco playing Henry Mancini's "Pie in the Face Polka" from the classic film, "The Great Race."

"Summer Follies" will be presented a second time the following Monday, Aug. 19, at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Sumner. That show also begins at 7 p.m.

The programs are made possible in part by grants from the city of Enumclaw, 4 Culture of King County and the Muckleshoot Charity Fund.

It is suggested that all who attend take along a chair or blanket on which to sit.

There is no admission charge, but a $10 donation per person is recommended.

The Gateway Concert Band, directed by Jack Prindle, is based in Enumclaw. Formed in March 1996, members have presented more than 215 performances. The band is open to any interested adult instrumentalist – and competent high school musicians – without audition.

The band rehearses from 7 to 9 p.m. Mondays at Enumclaw Middle School.
