2016 Spring Concert

It’s concert time again.  I am very honored and excited about leading the GWCB. Gene started a wonderful tradition and I hope to carry on the reasons for the existence of this group.  I am not as eloquent a speaker as Gene so I’ll just get on with the nuts and bolts.

Rehearsals For the Spring Concert will continue to be at Westfield Middle School North Starting at 7:30pm and going to 9pm.

2015 Fall Season

Our fall schedule is going to start a week earlier than in the past.. Veterans Day will fall on what would have been our traditional concert date.  Because of the middle school programs, we cannot delay the concert until after the holiday.  So take note of the slightly different schedule listed below.  I’m looking forward to making wonderful music just one more time.  Remember you must attend at least four rehearsals to perform with us on the concert.
9/21, 9/28, 10/5, 10/19, 10/26, 11/2
All rehearsals and the concert are held at the North Middle School and start promptly at 7:30 PM.

2014 Fall Season

I hope that all of you had a chance to enjoy this beautiful summer weather.  It’s going to be hard to see the warmth go but, we will keep things hot with our music.  You will find the schedule listed below.  Remember that our success depends on each of you. so as usual, I expect everyone to attend all rehearsals.  You cannot perform with us unless you attend at least four rehearsals. All rehearsals and the concert are held in the North Middle School band room and auditorium on Southampton Road  in Westfield.

I would like to remind all of you that in addition to our Spring Concert on May 13, 2015, we have accepted an invitation to perform the same concert in West Springfield on May 21st. We will need to have as many of you as possible be with us that night to show them how well we sound.
