The Sandusky Concert Association is pleased to present a FREE Concert from a band composed of local musicians!  Sunday, May 3rd, 2020 at 3 pm. The Concert will be held at the Sandusky State Theatre. Special thanks to the Sidney Frohman Foundation.
 
The North Coast Concert Band started in January, 1983. Since then, the band has presented three formal concerts and several outdoor concerts each year. The concert band, under the direction of John Kustec, performs in Willard, Fostoria, Tiffin, Norwalk, Sandusky, Port Clinton, Oak Harbor, Bellevue, Clyde, Fremont, Kelleys Island, Maumee Bay State Park, Old Fort, Bowling Green and Huron.

The NCCB concert will feature a world premiere performance of a new Band composition by composer David Holsinger, entitled, “Of Sun and Wheat”.  This composition was commissioned by Perkins High School alumni, friends, and community members to commemorate the retirement of John Kustec as Perkins Band Director.  The Firelands Symphony Chorale, under the direction of Michael Shirtz, will join the concert band for a few selections, including the emotional and inspiring “Battle Hymn of the Republic”.  A medley of John Williams’ selections will also be performed which features Superman and Star Wars.  A stirring rendition of “America the Beautiful” will also be performed along with some marches and other patriotic selections.
