Summit Concert Band launches winter season

What: The Summit Concert Band

Time/Place: 7 p.m. Thursday, Lord of the Mountains Church, Dillon

DILLON – A brassy night of local talent is promised Thursday as the Summit Concert Band plays the first of a series of concerts at Lord of the Mountains church in Dillon.

The group, under the direction of conductor Patrick Fagan, is made up of volunteer musicians from across Summit County – and beyond.

Membership also includes players from Fairplay, Leadville, Kremmling and Steamboat Springs. Despite a considerable range in age and ability, the ensemble has been brought up to speed by Fagan and is ready for a big show.

And they’re definitely in it for the fun, as well as furthering their own musical skills.

The Summit Concert Band is always looking for new members – if you can blow a horn of any kind or beat a drum, you’re invited to join.

Regular rehearsals are held at 7 p.m. every Thursday (except this week) at Summit High School’s band room. More public performances are planned through the winter and spring.

There’s no charge for Thursday’s performance but donations to the concert band’s operations are always welcome.

Anyone looking for more information about the group should call Dotty Edwards at (970) 453-6671.
