The precise details of our summer concert schedules are always highly tentative, and remain so at all times, due especially to the weather. Much of our equipment, including our printed music, cannot necessarily survive exposure to rain, so occasionally concerts must be canceled or even stopped "in progress". And, if a concert is canceled, we sometimes arrange to perform that same concert later in the season.
May 20 – For the second year in a row, the band’s season will begin with Jim Priebe conducting the Season Kickoff Concert at the Capitol Theater, with guests Bel Canto Chorale and Jeff Phillips.
May 29 – The annual morning Memorial Day ceremonies at Memorial Auditorium, sponsored by the American Legion and the Veteran’s Council.
