This Week's Concert
August 9, 2015
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.

This will be the final concert
of our 2015 summer season!
How can it be time for our final concert of the season?  It seems as if we just began!
But it is a sad fact that this will be our season finale.  Elsewhere on this web site we will soon post specific “thank yous,” recognizing those who have contributed to this season’s success.  But here, on the concert preview page, let it simply be said that we are tremendously grateful for the wonderful support we have received from our community!
As is our custom, this final concert will be a “Round Robin” event with multiple conductors.  Most are those who conducted a complete concert earlier in the season but some are making their only appearance as conductors this summer.  An obvious consequence of this format is a concert with a great variety of music and we are confident that you, our audience, will enjoy it as much as our band members!
