Note from the webmaster: We update this web site at least once a week during our summer concert season. Since the program for each Sunday concert is finalized at our rehearsal on Monday evening, we generally post the week's update sometime on Tuesday. Unfortunately, if you are viewing this page on a summer Monday, what follows will undoubtedly be the information for YESTERDAY'S concert.
This week our conductor will be Mark Eveleth, who recently retired from his thirty-five year tenure as the band director at West Burlington High School. Now that Mark has retired he tells us that he's happy to have more time to practice and promises to get his trumpet chops in great shape! Mark has decided to take a "sentimental journey" through his career by programming pieces that he and his students particularly enjoyed playing over the years and we're certain that you will enjoy them too!
Next week's concert
will be conducted by Jim Priebe
