FAIRFIELD — Breaking from the tradition of a common theme tying together each musical piece in their shows, the Solano Winds Community Concert Band is ready for its May 9 show, “Beside the Point – It’s Just Great Music!”

“One indication that a piece of music may be great is to check its pedigree,” said Bill Doherty, Solano Winds director, in a press release. The show will feature works from Leonard Bernstein, Dmitri Kabelevksy, Igor Stravinsky, Camille Saint-Saens, Peter Tchaikovsky and John Phillip Sousa.

Doherty also likes his musicians to showcase music that connects with audience members. He’s chosen four “barn-burners” for the show, including two overtures. These will compliment a classic march and excerpts from Stravinsky’s classic ballet, “The Firebird.”

Great music, Doherty said, stands on its own merits. He said the program’s selections pass that test with Bob Margolis’ treatment of the 16th century Renaissance music in “The Renaissance Fair” for concert band. Doherty describes it as an unexpected treat for the ears.

Darius Milhaud’s composition, “Suite Francaise,” also on the program, has become a cornerstone of the wind band repertoire, Doherty said.

The Solano Winds will premiere a new composition from member Melvin Brito titled “Untold Stories.” It’s based on the poem “Souls and Raindrops” by Sidney Lanier. The song is dedicated to the composer’s mother, JoAnn Naiman.

During the program, the Solano Winds will pause to honor the three recipients of this year’s Robert O. Briggs Music Scholarship.

The Solano Winds rehearses weekly at Vanden High School and has 60 members from eight counties. Musicians range in age from 16 to 97.

This is the last local show of the season. On May 31, Solano Winds will participate in the Carmichael Park Community Band Festival in Carmichael. It is scheduled to play at 1:15 p.m.

More information about the group can be found at www.solanowinds.org.

    Amy, the overtures are probably not going to tell the marches that they look nice at the concert, however, the two styles will undoubtedly complement one another.
