And finally, we thank wish good luck to new president, Dave Wohlhueter.
Adopt-A-Band Concert - DeWitt Middle School
Each year the Ithaca Concert Band partners with an area Middle or High School for its Adopt-A-Band Concert. This year, the group had the pleasure of playing with members of the 7th and 8th Grade Concert Band from DeWitt Middle School, under the direction of Ross Mizrahi. To prepare for the concert, the respective conductors visited the other band and worked with them during their normal rehearsals. Before the public performance, the groups come together on the stage for the first time to play through the selections for the concert.
This free community event gave advanced exposure to the younger musicians as they sat among the more seasoned members of the Ithaca Concert Band. Dr. Fonder encouraged them to read along with the harder music and noted that the majority of the adults made a living doing something other than music showing that the students could look forward to a life-long pursuit of the arts even if their careers lead them in another direction.
Who We Are
The Ithaca Concert Band is the area's community band - the official band of the City of Ithaca - and performs throughout the year at local auditoriums and outdoor venues including the Ithaca Commons summer concert series. The band receives support from donations, both private and corporate, and grants from the Community Arts Partnership.
