The Jackson Hole Community Band, a musical fixture in Jackson Hole concerts, parades, and other public events since 1989, is regretfully saying farewell to its music director and conductor, Jennifer Levanduski. The band credits Levanduski for bringing them to a new level of performance through the challenging and varied repertoire and the leadership. Jennifer’s final concert as conductor is “Night at the Movies” Saturday, April 30th, 7:00 PM at the Center for the Arts Theater.
It has been a privilege to lead this talented group of musicians! They have become family. We have created tremendous musical moments together. Conducting them has been the highlight of my career! ~ Jennifer Levanduski
With Mrs. Levanduski’s departure, the band is seeking a new Music Director, beginning summer, 2016. The JHCB is looking for someone with experience in conducting concert bands – especially community based organizations. The music director, in addition to conducting the group at rehearsals and concerts, chooses concert repertoire, works with the JHCB board to acquire necessary equipment and musical scores, and serves as the inspirational leader of the band. Finally, the band is looking for someone to inspire, excite, and satisfy band members and the public alike, keeping the JHCB tradition of working and performing for enjoyment and musical satisfaction alive and strong.

The Jackson Hole Community band is a 30-piece ensemble founded in 1989. We rehearse nearly year-around to provide free entertainment – from old favorites by Duke Ellington, to toe tapping marches by Sousa, to classics by Mussorgsky, at many community events, public concerts, and parades. Our members, all volunteers, hail from backgrounds as diverse as engineering, software, medicine, law, real estate, and the clergy and range in age from early-teens to the eighties. We have no skill level requirement or auditions, but prefer people who have played at least the junior high skill level. Most members have had a 15- to 20- year break before joining. It’s never too late to join! To supply musical accompaniment to special events for the benefit of both the musicians and the audience.
