We are excited to participate in the 2012 Jackson Hole Farmers Market on Saturday, August 18th. This year’s proceeds will help fund the Music in Harmony Collaborative Concert at the Center for the Arts on October 16th, 2012.
October’s concert will be an energizing night of music by five of your local non-profit music groups.
Jackson Hole Chorale
Jackson Hole Community Band
Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra
Jackson Hole Jazz Band
Please help us make this concert possible by supporting our local farmers this Saturday and stocking your cupboards with fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers, chocolates, homemade pies, scones, and much more.
The Jackson Hole Community Band will be there with our petting zoo instruments. Be sure to stop by our booth, have a cup of coffee, beat on the bass drum, and meet the musicians. We look forward to seeing you there!
Our 2010-2011 music year has been filled with excitement and change starting with the hiring of our current artistic director and conductor, Mr. Arturo Fuerte. Art has brought to the band a new level of enthusiasm, musical direction and instruction which has had a tremendous impact on the band’s sound. We are now playing music repertoire which is much more difficult, and appropriately programmed than ever before. The band has enjoyed working with him and this is evidenced in the increase in our regular membership from a waning 20ish members in 2009-2010 to a regular group of 40! It has been a lot of fun to work with the talented group of musicians from high school kids to retirees!
The year has also been punctuated by an amazing set of concerts begun last year with the inaugural Halloween Concert for the Kids. With over 350 people in attendance, the children had a great time in their costume parade on stage while the bad performed Dance of the Macabre. The holidays brought another wonderful show and a unique collaboration with the Cathedral Voices.
The spring brought new timing to our spring concert, this time in March followed by a recording of our very first CD, OPUS 1. Be sure to get your copy from a band member for a small donation.
Finally, summer brought our annual concerts at Jackson Lake Lodge and Music in The Hole and in a grand finale, the band played a joint concert with the Wyoming Army National Guard band at the Center for the Arts with special guest soloist, Jay Evans from the Grand Teton Music Festival! All these shows along with our regular gigs, parades, special Olympics, lighting of the town square, etc. has kept us very busy!
