Fall and Winter 2008 - 2009


The Concord Band, pictured here in concert at historic Faneuil Hall,
begins the celebration of its 50th Anniversary Season with three of the
things that have made it so special over the first half-century: 
an internationally renowned guest conductor,
the world premiere of a new piece for band,
and a reprise of one of the Band's favorite commissioned pieces.
