2013 - 2014 Civic Concert Band Season
"These are a few of our favorite things"
"These are a few of our favorite things" will be the theme as the band members get to pick some of their favorite selections from past seasons. We have so many favorite things that we haven't been able to make our choices yet! But we can tell you there will be nice balance of band standards, lighter selections, some patriotic, and pop stuff.
