The Park Rapids Area Community Band will present their 28th annual fall concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18 in the Park Rapids Area High School auditorium.

The theme is "Hands Across the Sea," with a combination of American and British composers. Sousa's march, "Hands Across the Sea," sets the tone. Also included in the concert will be a medley of tunes from "My Fair Lady" by Americans Lerner and Lowe, "First Suite in E flat for Military Band" by British composer Gustav Holst, "Anchors Aweigh" by American composer Charles Zimmerman, and a symphonic suite from the Walt Disney movie "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl." Two more British composers are included with Elgar's "Nimrod" from "Enigma Variations" and a medley of tunes from Handel's "Fireworks Music." "Bugler's Holiday" by Leroy Anderson features the trumpet section. The program concludes with the traditional "Stars and Stripes Forever" by John Philip Sousa.
