Wimberley to get patriotic: Chorus and band joining together for concert

Staff Report

WIMBERLEY — After sitting outside enjoying “The Best Little Parade in Texas,” what could be better than sitting in air conditioning listening to beautiful music by two of Wimberley’s best and longest running musical groups?

The Wimberley Community Chorus and Hill Country Community Band are coming back together for the first time since 2019 for the 10th Annual Hometown Patriotic Concert on July 4. The concert will begin at 3 p.m. at Wimberley First Baptist Church. 

Favorite patriotic songs celebrating the birth and history of our nation will include “America the Beautiful,” “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “God Bless America,” and “Stars and Stripes Forever.” “Hymn to the Fallen” by John Williams from Saving Private Ryan will be accompanied by a powerful video presentation honoring those that gave everything for us. During “Armed Forces Salute,” military branch flags will be presented by a color guard while veterans of those branches will be invited to stand and be honored.

Joe Dollard, a 20-year member of the U.S. Navy Band, will be featured as a euphonium soloist in “The Yellow Rose of Texas Variations.” The Wimberley Community Chorus will be directed by Ed Snouffer, with his wife, Andrea, accompanying the Chorus on piano. The Hill Country Community Band will be directed by Dr. Manuel Arambula. 

The Chorus and Band are happy to be performing together again after several years missed due to COVID, and hope to see the community singing and enjoying music together again.

Anyone interested in participating in the Chorus or Band can find more information on their websites, www.wimberleycommunitychorus.org and www.hillcountrycommunityband.org.
