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.
Directing this week will be BHS band director Derrick Murphy. When not directing, Derrick is our trumpet section leader. Derrick is one of the area’s most active musicians and he performs not only with our band, but also with the Southeast Iowa Symphony, the Southeast Iowa Brass Quintet and the Bullis/Rutter Big Band. Derrick has chosen a variety of challenging selections for the band that include traditional marches, pop and contemporary band classics.
our 2018 summer season!
