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 or Wednesday. Unfortunately, if you are viewing this page on a summer Monday, what follows will undoubtedly be the information for YESTERDAY'S concert.
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.
The conductors will include BHS band director Derrick Murphy who will conduct Phoenix Rising, a new composition by Burlington composer Joel Prescott;
Joel Prescott, who will conduct John Philip Sousa's Fairest of the Fair;

West Burlington music teacher Jeremy Henman, who will conduct Lux Aurumque by Eric Whitacre;
Retired New London band director Ron Coberley, who will conduct Symphonic Dance No. 3 (Fiesta) by Clifton Williams;
