REGION- The Coast Guard Band presents a concert full of exciting solo works on Sunday, April 7, at 2 p.m. in Leamy Concert Hall. Under the direction of Captain Kenneth W. Megan, the Band’s talent is put on display in this afternoon of virtuosity. The program is certainly stylistically diverse with music for harp, jazz sextet, and Klezmer clarinet. The program culminates with famed jazz composer Allen Vizzutti’s “Jazzscape for Jazz Sextet and Concert Band,” providing a lovely combination of big band sounds and, without surprise, spectacular soloing. This event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required. Leamy Concert Hall is located at 15 Mohegan Avenue, New London and is accessible to the handicapped.
