2011 Charles Dean Memorial Trumpet Concert

2011 September 26

The Gainesville Community Band presents its 2011 Charles Dean Memorial Concert

Come enjoy our Charles Dean Memorial Concert on Sunday, October 9, 4p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church of Gainesville.

For the twentieth year, GCB will award a trumpet to an outstanding Alachua County middle school student musician in memory of Dr. Charles Dean (1929-1992). Dr. Dean was a founding member, principal trumpet and president of the Gainesville Community Band. The trumpet, donated by Hoggtowne Music, 5200 NW 43rd Street, Suite 501, means that a middle school band student will learn and enjoy music on a quality instrument, making practice and performance a rewarding experience for years to come.

This concert will feature the GCB Brass Ensemble, the GCB Trumpet Section, the Charles Dean Trumpet Presentation, and as our special guest artist, Mark Coffey, organist. First Presbyterian Church is at 300 Southwest 2nd Avenue in Gainesville and has plenty of free parking. There is no charge for admission; this is a First Presbyterian “Concert for a Cause,” so a goodwill offering will be collected to benefit the Gainesville Community Ministry. As always, this Gainesville Community Band concert is family friendly.
