The Central Kentucky Concert Band is delighted to be having its next performance at the UK Arboretum (500 Alumni Drive in Lexington) this Saturday, June 25th at 7:30 PM. The free performance is sponsored by its friends, the Friends of the Arboretum. Come enjoy an evening being serenaded by the band while surrounded by beautiful trees and gardens! Everyone is invited!
And, hey, did you know that trees and bands have some interesting things in common?
Top 5 Things Trees and Bands Have in Common:
(with apologies to certain late night talk show hosts)
Number 5: Trees are made of wood. The woodwinds in a band are made of–you guessed it–wood. Work with me on this.
Number 4: Trees control noise pollution. Come on, we’re a band! We make beautiful music that blocks out objectionable urban noises.
Number 3: Trees slow storm water runoff. If you’ve ever been out at band camp marching in the rain, you know that enough band members slow down storm water runoff, too.
Number 2: Trees produce oxygen and “breathe” carbon dioxide. Bands produce carbon dioxide and breathe oxygen. A coincidence? I think not.
Number 1: Trees shade and cool. Band members are cool, too! Don’t disagree—you’re on a band website or FB group while reading this. So, well, you know.
So there you have it. Thanks for your support of the band! The band looks forward to seeing you Saturday!
