* Other highlights include: "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Olympic Fanfare & Theme (1984)," "March of the Women Marines," "With Each Sunset" and "El Camino Real."

The band is directed by associate professor of music James L. Tully, director of bands at Coastal. The event is part of Coastal's 2007-2008 Cultural Arts Series. For more information, contact the Wheelwright Box Office at 349-2502.
