The Monterey Concert Band prepares for the coming Night of Music at the rec centre. Tickets for the Saturday

A Night of Music starts with Shackleford Banks and wraps with a Beatles medley at Monterey Recreation Saturday.

“A highlight of the evening will be when we play an arrangement by our tenor saxophonist, Ken Scott, of a sad folk tune Ashokan Farewell.

Dinner includes chicken or veggie pot pie, two salads, dessert and coffee or tea.

“There’s a jazz group within our group and they’ll play a few songs,” said concert band organizer Ervin Braithwaite.

Night of Music runs 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 17 at the centre 1442 Monterey Ave. Purchase tickets $20 for members and $25 for guests at the rec centre reception.
