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
- Cathedral Voices
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!
This 50-piece ensemble, founded in 1989, rehearses nearly year-around to provide free entertainment—from old favorites by Duke Ellington, to toe tapping marches by Sousa, to classics by Bach. In 2010 JHCB implemented two annual concerts for kids and our Halloween performance had over 350 people in attendance, including over 200 school children. Members, all volunteers, range in age from the teens to the 80s and hail from backgrounds as diverse as engineering, software, medicine, law, real estate, and the clergy.
Won’t you jump on the bandwagon? Your support of the Jackson Hole Community Band helps to buy new music, keeps our performance trailers rolling, pay rent in our rehearsal space in the Jackson Hole Center for the Arts, and supply our equipment and instrument needs, among many other things.
Please consider a contribution to the Jackson Hole Community Band through Old Bill’s Fun Run 2012, where your donation will be augmented by generous community philanthropists.
Just list the JHCB on your donor form.

Look at all the stars. You look up and you think, “God made all this and He remembered to make a little speck like me.” It’s kind of flattering, really. ~ Morgan Earp, Tombstone
