Our 2022-23 concert season is over.


The band created some fantastic performance moments as we continued our goal of musical excellence.

From our November Salute to Our Veterans, to our April All About the Blues we played a wide selection of entertaining music including a Beethoven Overture, Star Wars music, music from Les Misérables, Blues Brothers, Sousa marches and everything between.

We will now take the summer off and be ready to start rehearsals in October for another fantastic season of dynamic and inspiring music for all.

Have a great summer.

Here is something to tide you over. Phantom of the Opera performed Feb 2023.
