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.
Our conductor this week will be retired Burlington band director Jim Priebe. When not conducting, Jim plays trombone in the band and, occasionally, the euphonium. Our conductors often have themes for their concerts and Jim has chosen to call this the "Musical Time Travel" concert. He explains that music has great powers to "transport" us and he hopes that our audience will enjoy the experience of visiting other times and places of world, local and, hopefully, personal significance.
Next week's concert
will be conducted by Michael Knight
