The Wayne County Historical Society Summer Community Band is looking forward to its 2015 summer concert performances. The band will be performing under the baton of Mr Randy Claes on Wed., June 17 at 7:00 p.m.in St. Mary’s Gymnasium (across Bowman St. from the Wayne County Historical Society). A second concert is planned for Thurs., July 30 at 7:00 p.m. in “Downtown Wooster” in front of “Everything Rubbermaid”.
We will be playing “fun” songs – marches, show tunes, patriotic songs, etc. This band is an effort to remind us of the bands which many communities had back a hundred years 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.
We greatly appreciate the wonderful cooperation of the College of Wooster Music Department and College conductors Nancy Ditmer, Jeff Lindberg, Tom Roblee and Ned Brooks, and St. Mary’s Catholic Church for the use of their school gymnasium!! A huge thank you to a friend of the WCHS that is sponsoring the band for the fifth year!
The band is open to anybody that plays a band instrument (including percussion), young or not so young, experienced or not so experienced!! Last year we ranged in age from 13 to 93 years old! We are pleased to have about 50 members in the band!
