Jamestown Drama students to sing, dance, act in variety show Sunday

A group of teenagers will take the stage at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Amphitheater, but don’t think they won’t live up to acts that have preceded them there.

Nine students, ages 11 to 19, from the Jamestown Drama Enrichment Program will perform a variety show. Michele Constantino, director of the program, said the show will include a wide mix of Broadway and pop tunes and will offer something for everybody.

The term “Western Reserve” refers to a patch of land in northeast Ohio previously owned by the state of Connecticut in the 18th century. Members of the Brass Band of the Western Reserve picked that name over, say, “Brass Band of Akron,” to highlight the group’s diverse geographical makeup.

“It just seemed like a good name,” said band director Keith M. Wilkinson. “We didn’t want to pinpoint the name to any particular city, because that’s not the band.”

The American Legion Band of the Tonawandas, Post 264, will perform at 2:30 p.m. Sunday in the Amphitheater. The award-winning concert band, established in 1929, draws its membership from various musicians in western New York.

“(Chautauquans will) get a chance to hear a band that is a special band, really,” said Jim Scott, personnel manager and 50-year member of the band. “We have a handful of professional musicians, and we have some good band music that you’re never going to hear from any other band at Chautauqua.”
