In the mood for a fiesta? The gay Atlanta Freedom Bands perform "South of the Border," featuring songs from Central and South America, on Saturday, May 19, at Saint Mark United Methodist Church.
The 8 p.m. concert features the full band as well as six chamber ensembles.
“’South of the Border’ is an experiment for us in a couple of ways,” said AFB President Cliff Norris in a press release. “First, we will highlight the immense talent in our group by featuring six different small ensembles
from the band during the first half. The audience will experience a wide variety of sonorities and musical styles.
"Second, our concert seeks to engage the audience directly with the musical cultures of several different countries," Norris said. "I am sure there will be new, unusual and exciting sounds for everyone to hear!”
Tickets are $10 for general admission or $5 for students and seniors. They are available at the door and online at www.atlantafreedombands.com.
Atlanta Freedom Bands launched in 1993, with a marching band that performs at Atlanta Pride and other events. It now also includes the MetroGnomes jazz ensemble, Atlanta Freedom Concert Band, and a color guard.
