KCCB Collage II Concert

Well, another great evening of music from our own talented community members. Last week end it was 3 in 1: Ketchikan Community Chorus (Director Steve Kinney) with Ketchikan Orchestra Project(Director Jeff Karlson and Deidra Nuss) and Ketchikan Community Band (Director Roy McPherson).

This week end it was the KCCB - Ketchikan Community Concert Band under Roy McPherson.

A wonderful evening with a continuum of music all around the ballroom. The Ted Ferry Civic Center was lovely. Every wall in the ballroom had information about pieces to be played with pictures, hand made quilts, history. The tables were assigned with classical composer names and had decorative hand made lights; hand made soap from AURORA Soap Magic (a local artisan) all about The Man In Ice; and a fortune teller cube with 4 of the pieces that were played along with some notes about the music.

There were several solos: flute, guitar, euphonium - along with solo spots within pieces. Also: a trumpet trio; some pieces with the Scattered Sunshine Trombone Choir; and the Windjammers.

Mr McPherson did a great job keeping us humorously entertained during the shifting of staging for each piece.

Hooray to all Community music members. We have many groups on our Island that help to make Ktn the hotspot of talent!

Thank you to each who participated; all the back up work; the servers from NY Cafe; the coffee from Green Bean Coffee Company; the TFC staff.
