In Memoriam

The Concord Band mourns the death of its principal flutist, Barbara Weiblin, who succumbed to cancer on May 15, 2020. Barbara joined the Concord Band in 1985. In 2014, she played the solo in Flight of the Bumble Bee with the Band, and together with her husband Bill, organized refreshments for receptions at many of the Band's fall & winter concerts. In addition to being in the Concord Band, Barbara led a flute choir at St John's Lutheran Church in Sudbury and played for several years in the Nashoba Symphonic Band in Bolton.
