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

“We will be performing a very wide variety of music, from classical transcriptions to 1960s pop to high-quality original concert band compositions,” said conductor Joe Hatherill.

“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.
