‘I’ve heard that melody before, but where?’ is theme for NMB Fall Concert on Nov. 10


The Naperville Municipal Band will begin to wrap up its 160th anniversary year when it takes the stage at 3PM Sun., Nov. 10, at Wentz Concert Hall.

Ann Lord returns to add colorful commentary for fun and enjoyment as the band performs familiar classics from the likes of Flash Gordon and Elvis Presley that will have band fans saying, “I’ve heard that melody before, but where?”

Naperville Municipal Band Conductor and Music Director Ron Keller has been leading the city band since 1966. He’s enthusiastic about all the surprises he’s arranged for the upbeat theme that will showcase songs from the public domain that were made popular by play in radio, early TV shows and cartoons.

“I’m a melody kind of musician,” Keller said. “It’s been great fun to design a band concert with many arrangements that fit this theme of familiar melodies that many people will recognize.”

Keller added that the concert will feature some audience participation with a version of the old TV game show, Name that Tune.

Since Veterans Day is the following day after the Fall Concert, Keller noted the concert also will include marches and traditional band music to pay tribute to all men and women who have served honorably in the military.

Admission is free of charge. Doors open at 2:30PM. Wentz Concert Hall is located in the North Central College Fine and Performing Arts Center, 171 E. Chicago Ave.
