This Week's Concert
Sunday, August 7, 2022
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.

The members of the band and the Muni Band Foundation's board of directors would like to say thanks to all of you who have supported the band this year.  We wish you a healthy and happy fall winter and spring and look forward to seeing you again next year!
It happens every year so it shouldn't come as a surprise.  Yet each August it seems astonishing that another Muni Band concert season has passed by!  And so it is that we have come to our final concert of the 2022 season!
As has become customary for our last concert, this will be our annual "round robin" concert with multiple conductors taking the podium.
