The talented and artistic musicians of the Oceanside Concert Band will perform their annual spring concert on Sunday, April 28 at Knox United Church, 345 Pym St., Parksville.
Members of the band come from all across the communities of Parksville and Qualicum Beach, as well as from Port Alberni, Nanoose, Lantzville, and Nanaimo.
Led by music director and conductor, Paul Rathke, the Oceanside Concert Band will charm audiences with music from Broadway, jazz, classical, and big band genres, along with some marches for good measure.
