ZANESVILLE, Ohio – Area residents are invited to an outdoor concert in the park.
Sunday, August 7th at 7 p.m the ‘Schubach Big Band’ is presenting its annual free concert of big band classics and contemporary music. There you will hear everything from Glenn Miller tunes to Lady Gaga’s pop music.
“It’s really a big band concert disguised as a variety show because, we do traditional classic big band things and very contemporary things. We are doing “All of Me” by John Legend, we’re doing a reggae tune. We’re doing some rock n’ roll tunes but, we’re doing “In the Mood” and real big band like that also,” said David Schubach, Band Director, Schubach Big Band.
The event will take place at Zane’s Landing Park near the Lorena in Zanesville. Schubach said this event has been going on for 4 years now and it’s the band’s gift to the community.
“This is something for the whole family. The people who know big band music will hear things they like and I get the biggest kick out of kids, I call the generation earlier than me hearing this music and saying wow, this is cool. It’s not subtle, it’s loud,” said Schubach.
Schubach said the rain alternative location will be held at Grace United Methodist Church located on 5th and Shinnick St, Zanesville, Oh 43701.
