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.
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.
