This Week's Concert
July 24, 2011
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.

Our concert on July 24 will feature Jacob Davis in his first appearance on the podium of the Burlington Municipal Band.  Jacob is a Burlington native and a graduate of Burlington High School.  He received his music education degree from the University of Northern Iowa in 2010 and has just completed his first year of teaching as the band director of Burlington's Aldo Leopold Middle School.  A percussionist, Jacob made his first appearance with the band last summer as a xylophone soloist under the baton of Carmen Lachnitt.  Jacob has chosen a variety of interesting selections that the band enjoyed rehearsing.  We know that our audience will enjoy hearing them as well.
