2022 Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce Members & Visitors Guide Page 25 By Charlotte County Concert Band After an absence of over 18 months, the Charlotte County Concert Band returned to the Charlotte Performing Arts Center for its 2021-2022 season. Artistic Director Bob Miller continues to expand the band's repertoire with music meant to challenge the musicians and provide an interesting experience for the audience. While concert staples such as Broadway show tunes, marches and music from the Big Band era will continue to be on the program, "we are branching out to more classical pieces and new interpretations of songs you have heard before," Miller said. As in the past, you can count on instrumental soloists from within the band and vocalists brought in from around the local area. The CPAC stage is spacious, audio visual support is state of the art, and the acoustics are outstanding. There is seating for almost 900 with no obstructed views and the acous- tics allow members of the audience, sitting in the last row, to hear a triangle as if they were standing on the stage. Band members — who are all volunteers and routinely number about 50 — may increase to as many as 85 as the season progresses. The volunteer, community-based organization invites anyone interested to come by and see if it's something they'd want to do. The band rehearses every Tuesday evening and performs concerts once a month through April 2022. For more information on the band and upcoming concerts, visit the band's website (www.charlottecountyconcertband.com) or their Facebook page.
