Notes & Reviews:

The Allentown Band has, for almost two hundred years, kept the American concert band tradition alive. Drawn from within a fifty-mile radius of the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania, the band's musicians share one common goal - creating and preserving concert band music at a level of excellence rarely heard from a community band. The latest Allentown Band CD, subtitled "Our Band Heritage, Vol. 28", contains 24 of American favorite Leroy Anderson's (1908-75) most popular compositions, including "The Syncopated Clock", Belle of the Ball", "Serenata", "Trumpeter's Lullaby", and more. "Leroy Anderson is one of the great American masters of light instrumental music. His music remains forever young and fresh as the very first day on which it was composed." (John Williams, laureate conductor, Boston Pops)
