THANK YOU to everyone who came out to our performances this year. We look forward to seeing you next summer!
The WCHS Summer Community Band (sponsored by an anonymous donor for the Wayne County Historical Society) is looking forward to another summer of fine concerts. This band is an effort to remind us of the bands which many communities had back a century or so ago. The Wooster “Board of Trade Band” with their concerts in the old bandstand in front of the now “Everything Rubbermaid” store was an example of this type of band. Great appreciation is extended for their generosity!
The band will be performing under the baton of Mr Randy Claes of Wooster. The 7:00 pm concerts are planned for June 18 in the front yard of the Reason Beall House (WCHS) and the July 30 concert is scheduled to be in “Downtown Wooster” in front of “Everything Rubbermaid”. Spectators will need to bring their own lawn chairs. If weather does not permit outside concerts, we plan to have the concerts in St. Mary’s Gymnasium (across from the Reasin Beall home).
We plan to begin rehearsals in the College of Wooster Scheide Hall rehearsal room on Wednesday, May 14 at 7:00 pm. Rehearsals will continue on Wednesday evenings with the exception of concert nights until July 30. We greatly appreciate the wonderful cooper-ation of the College of Wooster Music Department, C.O.W. Prof. Nancy Ditmer, and C.O.W. Director Tom Roblee with our Summer Community Band!!
Anybody that plays a band instrument (including percussion) is welcome to join us, young or not so young, experienced or not so experienced!! We will be playing “fun” songs – marches, show tunes, patriotic songs, etc. If you haven’t played your instrument for a while, now is the time to “dig it out” and get practiced up and join in the fun!!
