This Week's Concert
July 13, 2008
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.
For those specifically SEEKING web pages from past concerts, our recent concert archives are now available online.

Clarinetist Mike Lachnitt will be our conductor this week.  A long time band member, Mike is the proprietor of Lachnitt Music Instrument Repair.  Mike is a member of the Southeast Iowa Band and ClasSax and leads the Little German Band.  Mike has chosen a program with an emphasis on European music.
Two concerts ago we were told that an audience member lost a camera and a pair of glasses.  Our guess is that they were left behind in the dash for cover during the rain.  If anyone has information regarding these items, please contact Jim Priebe at 752-7305 and we will see that they are returned to their owner.
