Pawtucket Students Enliven Outstanding Program
by Salvation Army Brass Band
PAWTUCKET - An outstanding performance by a big brass
band from South America was enlivened by participation from Pawtucket music
students in a concert held on Wednesday, April 16, at the downtown Visitor
Center, attended by more than 200 people.
(South America East Music Forces Chorus, under
Bandmaster Omar Perez.)
The students, under school music directors George Correia and David DiMaio,
who served as conductor, performed in two musical numbers with The Salvation
Army’s South America East Music Forces, which also features a chorus,
under Bandmaster Omar Perez.
After playing in “Muffins Rhapsody” and a medley of tunes titled
“Classics in Brass,” the young musicians, who came from schools
throughout the city, were rewarded with a standing ovation.
The concert was a benefit for The Salvation Army’s Pawtucket Corps,
established in the city in 1894.
