Armed forces salute May 12

The spring tubaphonia concert, entitled an "Armed Forces Salute," will be held Saturday, May 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the North Kingstown High School auditorium.

This free concert features musicians from Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut, of all ages from middle school to senior citizens, playing an amazing assortment of low, conical brass horns including baritones and euphoniums ophecleids, helicons, sousaphones, and , of course, tubas of all sizes. This performance occurs one week before Armed Forces' Day, so the band will parade the colors and salute our veterans and armed forces with patriotic tunes, melodies and anthems. We invite the audience to sing-along with the big brass. Nationally renowned tubist and conductor Gary Buttery will again lead the talented assemblage as he has for many years.

The concert is sponsored by the Wickford Branch of Centreville Bank, the North Kingstown Arts Council, and the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts. North Kingstown High School auditorium is a first rate, handicapped friendly, and acoustically suited for these great instruments. For more information call 295-1607 or 423-1285.
