Jacob Davis
Our second summer concert will be conducted by Aldo Leopold band director Jacob Davis.  Jacob is a percussionist and when not conducting will be heard playing snare drum, bass drum, bells, xylophone, or any of the multitude of “traps” that percussionists employ.  In addition to the Burlington Municipal Band, Jacob performs with the Southeast Iowa Symphony and the Southeast Iowa Band.
Next week's concert will be conducted by Ted Francis
