Welcome from the Director

We are back to a new year!
These are definitely trying times we are going through, but we will make it together! We will be back to making music, but it will look differently this year, since we can’t be with each other in person yet. In the meantime, dig around the site and check out some pictures from the past few years. I look forward to seeing everyone, virtually and eventually in person, and let’s make it a great year!

Howard University Annual Spring Concert

I just got a flyer for the subject concert on Thursday evening. Howard’s Concert Band director guest conducted the festival band last week, and his “Concert” Band (what most of us would call Symphonic Band) is outstanding! Extra credit to anyone (band or orchestra) who attends, and brings me back a program (be prepared to talk to me about the show).
