A musical celebration of America and its veterans is coming to the El Campanil Theater in Antioch this Veterans Day, November. 11, 2012. This patriotic tribute to our country and those who have protected it will feature two popular local groups, the Summerset Singers chorus and the Summerset Big Band, together in concert. The show will include such inspiring and rousing favorites as “America the Beautiful,” “Armed Forces Medley,” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” The program will also feature some of the most beloved standards from the World War Two era.
The SUMMERSET SINGERS are currently in their thirteenth season of entertaining residents of Brentwood community and Contra Costa County. Over-the years the chorus has grown to over seventy members, and has achieved the stature of one of the best choral groups in the area. Directed by Ernie Macintyre, the Singers are best known for their annual summer show, which this year will include an additional performance at the new Brentwood Community Center. The Singers also perform numerous Christmas concerts throughout the county.
The SUMMERSET BIG BAND was formed in May of 2006 as a “rehearsal band” within the Summerset retirement community. At that time there were nine members. The band has now grown to a core complement of fourteen, plus “alumni” and alternates, all talented musicians from the Brentwood-Antioch area of Eastern Contra Costa County. The band is comprised of five saxophones, four trombones, four trumpets, piano, bass, and drums.
The Summerset Big Band has played to the delight of thousands people who enjoy
