World Renown Celtic Band to Perform
in Southern Maryland
On Saturday, May 12th, the
Southern Maryland Concert Band will
kick off its musical season with
its annual Spring Concert at the
College of Southern Maryland. This
year, the group is thrilled to be
joined by the internationally acclaimed Celtic group, the
Rogues, for a performance entitled “My Heart is in the
Highlands.” Tickets for the 7:30 PM concert are available
online, via the band's website: www.somdconcertband.org.
Michael Peerless, conductor of SMCB, said, “I'm thrilled to be
part of this exciting new chapter in the band's twenty-eight
year history serving the Southern Maryland Community.”
The Southern Maryland Concert Band, with over 40 active
members, was formed in 1984 as an all-volunteer, non-profit,
community-based ensemble of adult and student instrumentalists
dedicated to performing quality concert band music for audiences
in and around Southern Maryland.
Based in Charles County since its inception, the Southern
Maryland Concert Band has performed many formal and community
concerts over the years. The Southern Maryland Concert Band is
the only community based instrumental ensemble dedicated to
providing quality, yet affordable music to families in Southern
Maryland. In addition to formal concerts, 8 to 10 informal
community concerts are presented each season at fairs,
festivals, historic occasions and special events.
Voted #1 Celtic Band in the World, the Rogues have performed
for over 1 million people. In 2010 they won Album and Group of
the Year and headlined in Las Vegas at the Monte Carlo. In 2011
the US Navy flew them to Guantanamo Bay to perform for the troops
and their music appeared in the Christopher Walken film, "Kill
the Irishman." Renowned for their musical skill, quick wit, and
engaging stage show the Rogues have mastered the art of creating
an immediate connection with their audiences.
