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.

Arnie Anderson
Our conductor for the July 21st concert will be New London’s Junior/Senior High School band director Arnie Anderson, a thirty year veteran of the band.  Arnie plays the tuba and, besides his membership in the band, performs with the South Hill Brass.  Arnie has chosen an interesting theme for his concert, “Music that’s on my daughter’s iPod.”  It will undoubtedly be evident to our audience that Arnie’s daughter Samantha (who, as a talented high school student, plays horn in the band) has a more sophisticated taste in music than most individuals in her age group!
