 If you like concert band music,  you have special treat in store for you Friday night at 8 o’clock at the Springer Opera House.  It’s special because not only will three people be inducted into the High School Band Director’s National Association Hall of Fame,  but Bob Barr’s son Eric will be on hand to perform an oboe solo.  He recently retired as the principall  oboest for the Houston Symphony Orchestra.

He is not the only soloist who will play with the Bob Barr Community Band.  Gina Moody,  who teaches orchestra at Jordan High and Arnold Middle School,  will play Carl Von Weber’s “Concerto for Clarinet.”  I heard her at rehearsal.  Her playing was quite impressive.

There will be music from Sousa to Gershwin.  Since Conductor George Corridino asked me to emcee the concert,  because I emceed the Bob Barr Community Band’s first concert 20 years ago and was a Bob Barr student when he came to Jordan High in 1946,  I’ll be there.  I’m honored to do it.  Hope to see you there.
