Elkhart Municipal Band

Bar 1-2 of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue played ...Image via Wikipedia

Yesterday was my first performance with the Elkhart Municipal Band. I am only a sub, but I enjoyed it very much. The performance included the 1812 Overture and Rhapsody in Blue - performed by Nicolas Roth. There was a good crowd for the concert at Elkhart Central, I'm guessing around 500 people? The band played well and the response from the crowd was nice. Thanks Bryce for letting me sub for you it was a great experience!!! On a side note I noticed some of the performers had stars on their jackets, when I asked what they were for they told me each star was for five years in the band. Some people had 8 stars!!! WOW!!!
