Course on Circus Music at Las Positas
The Friends of the Golden Gate Park Band was formed in 2006 to
honor the enormous contributions of the Golden Gate Park Band and to encourage and support the patronage of the arts and live concert band music performances in Northern
A part of this mission, the Friends are working with Las Positas College in Livermore to offer a summer community education course on circus music. Many younger
people are unfamiliar with the type of music played historically by circus bands. We are working with the College to provide their students and other interested persons with an
opportunity to learn about and play such music and to perform with the Golden Gate Park Band in a Circus Concert at the Spreckels Temple of Music in Golden Gate Park.

Dates for the course are July 31 and August 7, 2010, all day at the College. The circus concert will be on August 8 at 1:00 in Golden Gate Park. There will be two or three clinics in conjunction with the rehearsals. The circus concert will feature Adam Frey, well-known international euphonium soloist, on "The Old Brown Bear" and other circus favorites. Adam Frey will also play as a soloist with the Golden Gate Park Band’s regular concert on Sunday, August 1, 2010, concert.
