A special Somewhere Over the Rainbow spot will be played in memory of former Sounds saxophonist Bob Imlah, who passed away recently. Sounds of Freedom have grown tremendously since their debut performance in October of last year with roughly 30 members; tonight’s showcase will highlight the current 53-member ensemble.
