“The Killer B’s” Come to SCF, Manatee-Sarasota in Symphonic Band Concert

An upcoming concert at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota will be brought to you by the letter B, when the SCF Symphonic Band presents “The Killer B’s: Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and Bernstein.” The celebration of these musical masters begins at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, in SCF’s Neel Performing Arts Center, 5840 26th St. W.

Not all brilliant composers’ birth names begin with the letter B, but those that do are boldly memorable. Selections planned for the concert include “Fantasia in G,” by Johann Sebastian Bach; “Egmont Overture,” by Ludwig von Beethoven; “Finale to Symphony No. 1,” by Johannes Brahms; and “Overture to Candide,” by Leonard Bernstein.

General admission is $8; students and SCF employees, $4. Information and tickets: SCF’s Neel box office, 941-752-5252, To purchase tickets online visit
