Calaveras Community Band's Annual Fall Concert to Benefit Rosendo Rojas

Angels Camp, CA...The Calaveras Community Band’s annual fall concert will take on special meaning when it is presented Sunday, November 3, 3 p.m. in the Dr. Elliot A. Smart Performing Arts Center at Bret Harte High School in Angels Camp. Although there is no admission charge, donations will be solicited with all proceeds going to the family of Rosendo Rojas, of Vallecito, the band’s percussionist throughout his middle and high school years. The young man is battling a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer involving surgery and extended treatment. “Rosendo is a beloved member of our band family,” states bandmaster Mic Harper. “He has been courageous during this terrible ordeal and we want to do something to demonstrate our support and affection.”



For the concert, Harper has selected an eclectic mix of seasonal, traditional, and multicultural music. The Second Suite for Military Band in F major by Gustav Holst and Rachmaninoff’s Italian Polka will be intermixed with the seasonal sounds of A Winter’s Carol, O Nata Lux by Guy Forbes, and Baby, It’s Cold Outside featuring a trumpet and euphonium duet.

A bit of Dixieland jazz with Way Down Yonder in New Orleans will round out the program.

Everyone, young and old, is encouraged to be in attendance as the band wraps up a successful musical summer in the beautiful parks of Murphys, Valley Springs, and San Andreas.

Harper cautions that Sunday will mark the end of Daylight Savings Time so people should check their clocks. “We would hate to have you miss the concert.”

The Calaveras Community Band traces it history to the days following the Gold Rush. Men would brush away the grime of the mines, put on a uniform, take up their musical instruments and entertain the crowds at many public functions. Creating music brought extra meaning to their lives and provided a counterpoint to the stresses of the day.
In those times they were known as the Angels Camp Miners Band, the Murphys Independent Cornet Band, or by a dozen other names.
Today the Calaveras Community Band carries on this honored tradition. The age range has been expanded. Women are now welcomed and respected. The military uniforms have been put aside. But the spirit remains the same – people who love to play music performing for those who enjoy listening. And together they create a relaxing and enriching environment.
