Our “Not In The Park” summer picnic series continues with “A Tribute to Sammy Nestico, Dave Wolpe and Bill Prince”, a Swingtime Concert. Guest Conductor Charlie Almeida takes the baton for an evening of music written by Sammy Nestico, a composer and arranger of Big Band music best known for his arrangements for the Count Basie Orchestra; Dave Wolpe, another Big Band composer who has scored dozens of arrangements for the Glenn Miller Orchestra; and Bill Prince, whose arrangements span different genres of music. Bring a picnic dinner and some friends to enjoy the music in our air-conditioned auditorium. The concert is free and tickets are not required. The Swingtime ensemble of the Melbourne Municipal Band is a 20-piece band directed by Art Martin, a tenor and baritone saxophonist. Art has performed with the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, Dizzy Gillespie, and The Platters, to name just a few.
