BANDMASTER’S UPDATE

/
I doubt there has ever in the 95 years of the band’s existence been a fall season quite like the one just concluded! After the Covid-19 virus abruptly shut the band’s Spring 2020 season last March the question coming into the start of the new season in September was whether there would even be a new season. I’m happy and proud to say that, because of the determination of our players, the planning ability of our band board, and the unwavering support of our divisional leaders, the band was able to continue its uninterrupted record of ministry and service in spite of the virus and all the restrictions on rehearsing and performing. If you want proof take a look at our 'News' column detailing all the events the band was part of in the last few months.
