A Salute to Community Bands 2012

Community Bands are at the heart and soul of America's towns, cities and communities. The USA claims over 2,500 bands. In the Metroplex, there are probably 40 or more community bands. Traditional concert band literature, marches, patriotic pieces, religious songs, folks tunes and Broadway Musical favorites comprise the programs which are enjoyed by many throughout the USA as local musicians join the band to enjoy playing their instruments and provide entertainment in their communities.
