A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
The Pioneer Band has just concluded their 2023 Summer Concert Season.
So, it’s time to start preparing for 2024, our 135th year!
Over the winter, the band will be preparing four different programs to play for you next
season. Here is a peak to see what you can expect to hear.
A Children’s Concert. This will be an all Disney concert including several medley’s that
will be an audience sing-along led by our vocal soloist, Amelia Gamble. As always, the kids will
be invited on stage to have their turn conducting the band.
A Tony Award Concert. This concert will feature Broadway musicals that won the Tony
award for best musical from each of the past eight decades. In this concert you will hear music
from Hamilton, Jersey Boys, Les Misérables, A Chorus Line, Man of La Mancha,
The Lion King, and The Music Man.
Our annual Patriotic concert will include music from World War I, World War II, the Civil
War, and as always, we will have Sousa marches and a salute to our Armed Services.
Finally, our Pops Concert will feature music from the Mommas and the Poppas, The
Doors, Michael Jackson, Journey, The Beatles, John Denver,
and the Queen of Soul – Aretha Franklin.
Looking forward to seeing you in the summer of 2024!
