Our founding conductor is John Monachan CD, SSM who has developed our band into one of the best sounding large musical groups in Southwest Florida. His concentration on the basic elements of music, and dynamic musical programming has resulted in very entertaining, and fun performances that can be listened to by going on Youtube and searching Southwest Florida Concert Band.
