TW Pick of the Week:

Tacoma Concert Band will present a “Bon Voyage” concert June 24 from 2 to 4 p.m. It will be a concert of music that TCB will be playing on their upcoming tour of Scotland and Ireland. There will be American, Scottish and Irish music by Leonard Bernstein, Percy Grainger, John Williams, Leroy Anderson, John Philip Sousa, and others. Conducting will be the TCB’s Music Director Emeritus, Robert Musser. Soloists will include Morris Northcutt, cornet, Bill Dyer, trombone, and Jason Gilliam, euphonium. This free concert will be the Tacoma Concert Band’s only concert this summer and a chance to hear its Scotland/Ireland repertoire without leaving Pierce County. It’s also a great way for the whole family to spend a Sunday afternoon and to experience the Northwest’s premier concert band once more under Maestro Musser. The concert will take place at the Clover Park High School auditorium at 11023 Gravelly Lake Dr. SW in Lakewood. For more information visit
