Mark Eveleth
Hose off those lawn chairs – the time we’ve all been looking forward to is almost here.  Our 2014 season begins this Sunday, June 1st!  Our conductor will be long-time West Burlington band director Mark Eveleth.  Mark plays trumpet in the band when he’s not conducting and plays in the Bullis-Rutter Big Band and the South Hill Brass as well.
We’re starting our season off with the annual Teddy Bear’s Picnic concert.  As always, the concert will feature music with appeal for the young and the young at heart and will feature a “Teddy Bear’s Parade.”  We ask that you bring your favorite teddy bear and join in marching around the area in front of the band shell while the band plays the “official” Teddy Bear’s Picnic song.  The parade is for “kids” of all ages so don’t miss out on the fun!
