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.

Retired Burlington band director Jim Priebe will conduct our July 14 concert.  A long-time band member, Jim regularly plays trombone in the band, though he has played the euphonium for some of our concerts this season.  Jim enjoys playing both instruments and is happy to play whichever is most needed for each week’s concert.  Besides our band, Jim performs with the Southeast Iowa Symphony, the Southeast Iowa Band, the Southeast Iowa Brass Quintet, the Southeast Iowa Trombone Quintet, the South Hill Brass, the Bullis-Rutter Big Band, and the River City 6.
