Join Charlotte Pride Band (CPB) in our return to the concert stage – “Concert in the Park.” We’ll be performing from the bandshell in Charlotte’s Freedom Park on Saturday, August 14th at 6pm. Bring friends, family, chairs, and a picnic. FREE ADMISSION.
Musical selections include a medley of movie hits by John Williams, a spirited Spanish march entitled “Amparito Roca,” Percy Grainger’s “Lincolnshire Posy,” Richard Strauss’s fanfare “Also Sprach Zaranthrustra” best known as the theme from “2001: A Space Odyssey,” and Appalachian themed selections “Kentucky 1800” and “Blue Ridge Reel.”
The ensemble is led by artistic director Dr. John Ross, director of bands at Appalachian State University. CPB has approximately 50 members drawn from the greater Charlotte’s LGBTQIA community and ally supporters.
