Information on Summer Concerts

Springtime is here.

I know because I received information from Dr. Pat Backhaus about the summer season of the Shorewood Concert Band. For those of you who are not familiar with the group, they rehearse on Thursday evenings one week, and perform a concert the next week. The only exception to this is the first concert, which is a part of the Shorewood Men's Club Chicken Dinner, and the 4th of July concert.

I wrote about their concerts last year. Besides playing marches, show tunes, and fun music in a traditional park setting, they also play a classical masterpiece every now and then. And they do a nice job at it considering they have only one rehearsal before a concert. Out of the many summer community bands in the area, the Shorewood Concert Band is one of the better ones.

No audition is needed. Everyone is welcome. If you would like to play, please contact Dr. Pat at

Here's the schedule of rehearsals and concerts:

June 11th - rehearsal at 7PM
June 13th concert at 4:30 PM as a part of the Men's Club Chicken Dinner, Atwater Park
June 18th rehearsal 7PM
June 25th concert at 7PM, Atwater Park
June 30th rehearsal at 7PM
July 4th concert at 6:30, Atwater Park
July 9th rehearsal
July 16th concert, Atwater Park

So dust off the old horn, get the chops buzzing, and send Dr. Pat an email. You'll be happy you did!
