Born at a Mardi Gras party in Portland, Oregon, MarchFourth Marching Band has become one of the nation's best live touring acts -- and you can catch them outdoors on Pier 15 backed by beautiful waterfront views. More than just a concert, a MarchFourth show is a celebration, with stilt-walkers, unicyclists, fire eaters, puppets, flag twirlers, clown antics, acrobatics and more, accompanied by an eclectic big band in marching band costumes. Anchored by funky electric bass and featuring a 12-piece horn section and a 10-piece drum/percussion corps, MarchFourth takes you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of Eastern Europe to the African jungle by way of Brazil, while honoring the musical traditions of American funk, rock and jazz. Opening for MarchFourth is Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution, a foot-stompin' gumbo of roots rock, old-school soul and New Orleans rhythms. Learn More

This is a review for the Concert on Saturday, not the film as the title above seems to be inconsistent....but anyway...concert was overall very enjoyable. The selection of pieces performed was varied, most interesting and many were new to me. Keeping in mind that many of the singers were high school age, although not always a flawless performance, it was well executed. Not all solo voices were really strong enough for the music they were performing (Mozart's "Regina Coeli" in particular). Two highlights for me were Sydney Bell's "Flower of Beauty" and the Lauridsen (of course)--both just gorgeous works.

Distinguished Concerts International deserve to be praised for producing this exceptional performance and for their generosity in providing discount and free tix. Seats were 3/4 towards rear, but at Avery Fisher Hall, acoustics are unbelievable....continued
