MUSIC IN MARCH

Music is in the air all over Brunswick County, NC. If you pay attention you can hear birds singing. They sing the sunrise into the sky, continue their concert throughout the day, and sing the sun to sleep at night. The breeze sings its own song – rustling through the leaves of the trees and setting off wind chimes. The ocean is constantly singing and yet sings a different song each day. Sometimes it is soft and gentle and sometimes it roars. If you like organized music, March is a great month to indulge yourself. The U. S. Navy Concert Band will be presenting a free concert at the Brunswick Community College Odell Williamson Auditorium ( http://leland.insiderinfo.us/arts/museum-hall-organization/brunswick-community-college-odell-williamson-auditorium/profile/)

in Bolivia, NC on Wednesday, March 11, at 7:30 PM. The concert band has been performing public, family friendly concerts for 90 years. The concert will feature marches, patriotic works and orchestral selections.
