Fly Me to the Moon, a fundraiser featuring the Tecumseh Big Band and the VocalAires, left many in Milan tapping their feet and with a song in their heart. The event at the Senior Center April 15 sponsored by Edward Jones Investments, Digital Brewery, Milan Physical Therapy and Say Yes Fitness 24/7 was a great success and brought in over $1,000 for Milan’s seniors. Fly me to the Moon was organized by The Milan Area Players and Dr. Eduardo Enriquez.
Intermission offered plenty of free cookies, fresh fruit, punch and coffee. Special thanks to Milan Coffee Works for the coffee, which many raved about and 1 person was lucky enough to take a bag home with her.
The audience enjoyed the evening so much they were reluctant to release the band and gave them a standing ovation asking for one more song. As they were leaving, several ask when the Tecumseh Big Band would be coming to play in Milan again.
The TCA Big Band is led by Adrian College Director of Bands and Music Department Chair, Dr. Marty Marks. The all-volunteer group was formed in 2004 and they share their love of music. Spring Concert is May 22 at Tecumseh Center for the Arts. www.thetca,org/upcoming-events.html
