Dear Friends and Music Lovers,
The Ontario/Chaffey Community Show Band will present their final concert of the 2013 season titled "Disney Razzle Dazzle" on Monday, June 17th. Beginning at 7:30 pm, this FREE show will be held in the beautiful Gardiner Spring Auditorium at the center of the campus of Chaffey High School, 1245 North Euclid Avenue in Ontario. This concert will feature many special guests including a very special guest conductor, Jim Christensen of Disney fame, the Sunshine Generation, and the Chaffey High School Wind Ensemble.
The Show Band is honored and proud to feature the music of composer, arranger, and conductor Jim Christensen, past Music Director for Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Mr. Christensen is an internationally known composer and conductor whose credits also include work in films, radio and television commercials, albums for Capitol, Crest, Vista, Disneyland, and many other record companies. He has produced and arranged special material for the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the Academy Awards Show, the Boston Pops, London Philharmonic, as well as hundreds of arrangements for Walt Disney Productions and the Pacific Pops Orchestra. The Show Band will perform a number of familiar Disney songs arranged by Mr. Christensen that include "It’s A Small World," "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah," "Chim Chim Cher-ee" and "Supercalifragillisticexpialidocious." Also featured on the program is Karen Christensen performing a flute and piccolo piece composed especially for her by her famous husband.
The Disney theme will be enhanced by musical performances from the “Sunshine Generation” under the direction of Katya Reimer. The Sunshine Generation is a national children's performing group that offers singing, dancing, and performing.
The concert will also include the talented Chaffey High School Wind Ensemble under the direction of Band Director Steve Yanik. They will perform several pieces with the Show Band, "An American Elegy" by Frank Ticheli conducted by Mr. Yanik and "The Bandmaster" by Dr. Gabe Petrocelli conducted by Maestro Jack Mercer.
Join us for the last concert of our 2012-2013 season while having a hot cup of FREE STARBUCKS COFFEE, and put some green stuff in the Hungry Tuba. We will also have many of our DVD's available for a small donation.
