The Stroud Township in PA presented The Trinity Centennial Band in the Jay Albertson Park (named after retired Township Supervisor Jay Albertson) on Sunday June 29th as part of their 2014 Summer Concert Series. Many gathered to set up their folding chairs in order to take their place under or around the tents the township had set up for the occasion while others sat comfortably upon the park’s gazebo or just outside their neighboring homes. It was during this time did those who would perform in the 55 piece ensemble prepare to do so with the delightful sound of final tuning of the many instruments taking place.
The concert began with the playing of the National Anthem of the United States that was followed by some welcoming words expressed by The Trinity Centennial Band’s primary conductor, Tom Salmon who also announced the ensemble was celebrating its 23rd year. The concert continued with several varied selections ranging from patriotic tunes to classical compositions with many performed under the direction of different conductors who each demonstrated a slight variation in their musical approach which enhanced the enjoyable aspects of the overall concert. The music performed throughout the concert flowed like a gentle breeze filling the air with the refreshing essence of each composition.
The conductors who presented their offerings to the audience were Marta Oberlin, Karl McDannell, Jenny Galunic, Andrea Stiff, Gene Bartz, and Floyd Frisbie. Michael Yasenchok performed as a soloist and whose powerful voice resonated throughout the park adding depth to the composition he presented. The concert was an enjoyable one with a wide variety of songs as well as manners in presenting them that proved to be enough to satisfy anyone’s musical taste.
