WHARTON, TEXAS – The Wharton County Junior College Band will throw a party for the community at its upcoming concert, “Let’s Dance.”
Scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 2, at the Horton Foote Theatre in the Duson-Hansen Fine Arts Building on the Wharton campus, the concert is open to the public and admission is free. Guests should come ready to have a good time, says WCJC Band Director Joe Waldrop.
“Not all music has to tell a certain story, sometimes music is just for enjoyment,” he said.
The concert will feature upbeat, energetic tunes that were popular over the past several decades. Selections will include well-known fan favorites from artists like The Village People and Michael Jackson. To add a little mood to the music, Waldrop will rely upon fog machines, strobe lights, lasers and other items associated with large-scale celebrations. The entire point is to just have some fun and enjoy the show.
“Sometimes you just have to let your hair down and enjoy life,” Waldrop said.
