Once a year the Band has the pleasure of performing in a large auditiorium with good concert acoustics that provide the audience and musicians an enhanced musical experience. This special concert is made possible through the sponsorship of the Gordon W. Bowie Memorial Fund and the Montgomery Village Foundation.
This concert’s theme is "Suite Dreams." It features wonderful music from well known suites by master composers for bands. Certain pieces include guest players on harp, cellos, and bassoon, plus a clarinet soloist.
