Conductor ‘Wilson’ Joins the Charlotte Concert Band to Celebrate 50 Years

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Wilson was in the Dana Auditorium at Queens University this morning where he was joining members of the Charlotte Concert Band as they celebrate their 50th anniversary.

After waking up everyone in the county by letting Wilson loose banging the gong, someone thought it a good idea to give Wilson a quick lesson on the french horn.  Another interesting example of what not to do with Wilson.  But then again, we know Wilson is full of hot air…so this just might work.

The Charlotte Concert Band (CCB) is comprised of volunteers of professional and dedicated amateur musicians from Charlotte with a mission to provide lifelong participation in music through quality performances of classic concert band repertoire.  CCB is a non-profit group affilited with Queens University  and depends on donations and grants.

CCB will be celebrating their 50th anniversary with a concert in Dana Auditorium at Queens University on Saturday, November 14th.  The concert “Transcendent Journey” will feature several guest conductors and performers. Admission is free but donations will be accepted.
