    Let's hear it for leader of the band

    The excellent story about the Corvallis Community Band in the Entertainer on March 10 is appreciated. It caught the flavor of the band and the enthusiasm of its members.

    Steve Matthes, the director of the band, was mentioned only briefly in the story. Steve has been our director for 25 years and has shepherded the band from a small, rather casual group to its present 65-member size and ability to play demanding programs.

    Besides directing the band, he selects the music and he chairs and sets the agenda for the member board of directors. Without his guidance and dedication, the band in its present form would not exist.

    Thanks, Steve, for your leadership and unfailing good humor. We'll be watching for your downbeat at our next concert.
