The Southshore Concert Band presents the Southshore Big Band in a “Big Band Spectacular.” Conducted by Dale Reuss, the Big Band will present a stage production with music from the 40s, 50s, and 60s sure to delight every audience member. The 1st half of the show will be “Letters to the Homefront.” Every selection will be taken from the World War II era and will be introduced with brief quotations from real letters exchanged between Southwestern Michigan soldiers serving overseas and their loved ones back on the Homefront. The second half will have Big Band music from later decades after WWII with a variety sure to please everyone. This stage production will have Big Band music; instrumental soloists; and vocalists – all from Michigan’s Great Southwest.
